  1. BLAH, okay so I got a “Salvia” plant… umm humm… you are suppose to eat even numbers of the leaves (I think it was 24 or so)…. OMG! I ate one and it was NASTY. Bitter nasty *gag… I have no idea how anyone could eat a bunch of that nasty vile weed! OH YEAH and nothing happened, I don’t know if eating a bunch of leave REALLY would be worth whatever you’d get compared to how nasty it taste. Why would anyone go for this weed over the nice “herb”…. I don’t suggest it kids.
