(KSL News) Lawmakers have set aside a proposed ban on a hallucinogenic herb.

Last year an Eyewitness News Investigation uncovered just how many teens are using salvia, a legal herb officers compare to LSD.

Representative Paul Ray had proposed banning the plant, but now he says federal regulators have alerted him they're close to reaching their own decision on the herb.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency says it's been researching salvia for the last five years, but there's no set schedule for a decision on how it will be regulated.
