I think this is satire.

I think.
War on Drugs expands to catnip: "Drug warriors scored a virtual victory after the 2006 U.S. elections when they hurriedly extended the War on Drugs to a psychoactive substance previously exempt: nepetalactone, the main psychoactive ingredient in catnip. It is well known that the sniffing of catnip makes some cats 'turn on.' Their eyes open wide, they roll over on the floor, they hug and bite the catnip toy and kick it with the feet, and they friskily run to and fro, similar to human beings who go crazy ingesting psychoactive drugs. While catnip does not have the same effect on human beings, the advocates of banning catnip have pointed out that children who give their cats catnip and then see the cat being 'happy' might get dangerous ideas about getting high."

If you don't talk to your cat about catnip, who will?

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure it's satire. I can't find a single link to the enabling legislation or regulatory documents. It looks like everyone's copying off the linked article and running with it.
