Dangerous Synthetic Drug Control Act of 2011

You are here

This legislation permanently bans chemicals commonly used in synthetic drugs similar to marijuana known as “Spice,” and “K2,” among other names.  Given the increase in synthetic marijuana across the country, this legislation would permanently ban the chemicals used to make the drug, treating K2 like other banned narcotics. This bill also increases the time the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services have to ban substances on an emergency basis from 18 months to 36 months allowing dangerous products to more quickly be removed from the market.
