• Bill would broaden ban on synthetic highs

    January 13, 2012 No comments

    Indiana legislators are considering proposals to ban synthetic drugs nicknamed “bath salts” and other compounds that mimic marijuana.

    House and Senate bills would add some two dozen chemical compounds to a law that legislators passed last year aimed at banning the synthetic marijuana known as spice or K2.

    The laws treat possessing or dealing synthetic marijuana the same as the real drug. That makes dealing or possession charges a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

    The House criminal code committee is holding a public hearing Friday on the bill. A Senate committee hearing is set for Tuesday.
