Designer Drugs Restriction Approved by Judiciary Committee

Last week the Senate Judiciary Committee approved bills restricting the use and sale of certain chemicals used in synthetic drugs also known as “designer drugs.” These drugs, which are marketed as safe alternatives to getting high, have chemicals in them that are also found in incense and bath salts (which have stirred much controversy around their stimulating and hallucinogenic affects). Chemicals found in designer drugs will be added to a broad list of Schedule I controlled drugs, which are deemed highly addictive with no medical use.
