Governor Dayton Signs Mock Bill In Fight Against Synthetics
Just this week The Last Place On Earth was raided by authorities based the selling of synthetic drugs. Our partners at The Northland's News Center are reporting that today Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed a mock bill that will expand the definition of illicit synthetic substances.
This bill will take effect on August 1st. The bill enhances current laws regarding the production and use of synthetic drugs in Minnesota.
This bill will also allow the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy to expedite rule making authority in order to handle the ever changing chemical make up of synthetic drugs.
The law will also increase the penalty for the selling of the illegal synthetics. Those convicted could receive up to 5 years in jail, a $10,000 fine or both.
