Statement on Regulations to Further
Criminalize Bath Salts and Other Synthetic Drugs

All too often we hear of devastating cases involving the use of bath salts or synthetic drugs. Despite federal and state regulations that have banned their sale, use and/or possession, producers and distributors of these dangerous and illegal substances continue to make available different variations of these synthetic drugs, further aggravating their widespread use. I applaud the Governor's effort to close this loophole by expanding the list of banned substances and imposing tougher penalties for those who sell these drugs.
