Panel recommends crackdown on synthetic drugs

January 30, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A legislative panel is recommending that Minnesota lawmakers give the state Board of Pharmacy the power to order businesses to stop selling synthetic drugs.

The panel also proposes a statewide educational campaign on synthetic drugs, expanded drug definitions and training for prosecutors. It also recommends giving the Board of Pharmacy the authority to add products to Minnesota's list of banned drugs.

Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/1bzs9RJ ) reports members of the House Select Committee on Controlled Substances and Synthetic Drugs released the report Wednesday to give lawmakers time to consider it during the upcoming legislative session.

The special legislative panel began its work last year, soon after authorities shut down the Duluth head shop known as the Last Place on Earth and prosecuted its owner for selling banned synthetic drugs.
