Drug sellers on Internet can be jailed
By State Political Reporter GREG KELTON

DRUGS advertised on the Internet as a legal substitute for Ecstasy have been banned by the State Government.

The Government also will join all other states nationwide in banning a herb known as "Mexican Mint" because it has hallucinogenic properties.

Penalties ranging between $100,000 and $1 million and up to 30 years' jail for possessing, selling or manufacturing the drugs will be gazetted today.

The drugs to be banned are Trifluoro methylphenyl piperazine (known as TFMPP) and Benzyl Piperazine (BZP) and Salvia Divinorum.

Premier Mike Rann said the drugs were being advertised on the Internet and posed a major threat for young people.

He said the Government had acted to protect people's health and safety.

BZP was a stimulant which had properties similar to amphetamines while TFMPP was seen as a hallucinogenic.

"Police have raised concerns about the use of these drugs because they have similar effects to Ecstasy," Mr Rann said.

"The Queensland Government has moved to ban them along with the US Drug Enforcement Administration and we are moving quickly on the advice of police." Mr Rann said both were derivatives of drugs used in veterinary practice.

"Someone has discovered how to get access to them and is advertising them on the Internet," he said. "They are highly dangerous."

Mr Rann said Salvia Divinorum was a herb from Mexico known as "Mexican Mint" and had a high potential for abuse.

He said the National Drugs and Poisons Committee had recommended taking action against its use in Australia and all states had agreed to ban it.

"The mint has hallucinogenic properties when chewed, smoked or used in a drink," Mr Rann said.
