SYNTHETIC DRUGS-CRACKDOWN
Ohio enacts rule to permanently ban 2 chemicals used in creation of synthetic drugs

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 11:56 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


The state says a new rule has gone into effect in Ohio that permanently bans two new chemicals abused as illegal synthetic drugs.

The rule announced by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and State Pharmacy Board Director Kyle Parker attempts to outlaw the two chemicals and any variations of them.

The rule taking effect Thursday classifies the chemical compounds as controlled substances illegal under Ohio law.

Authorities say the compounds appeared after a 2012 law went into effect banning all synthetic drugs that existed at the time.

The chemicals are often sprayed on plant material to mimic the effect of marijuana. The drugs can have effects similar to, but longer-lasting, than amphetamines.

DeWine has asked for the authority to ban compounds that are a threat without the need for legislation.
