Senate Acts on Drug and Alcohol Bills

Posted:

Senators approved House Bill 1133 which covers all variations of synthetic drugs.

The bill seeks to close a loop hole in tackling the synthetic drug problem.

The bill bans substances or chemicals that cause similar effects to drugs already considered illegal.

This covers any new synthetic drugs that are manufactured and not listed as controlled substances in current law.

The bill returns to the House for its consideration because the Senate made some changes to the legislation.
