Florida Outlaws 22 Additional Synthetic Drugs

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has signed an emergency rule that outlaws 22 new synthetic drugs. The outlawed drugs are various forms of baths salts, or synthetic marijuana, known as K2 or Spice. In 2011, the state legislature banned a number of synthetic drugs. This year, the legislature banned additional versions of the drugs. Bondi is planning legislation in the coming year to permanently outlaw the 22 drugs targeted in the new emergency rule. Several of the drugs could be appealing to children because one has the consistency of cotton candy, while another is marketed as a “Scooby Snack.” Law enforcement began contacting convenience stores this week, asking them to voluntarily surrender any products that have been newly banned.
