(INDIANAPOLIS)(AP) - The Indiana House has given final legislative approval to a proposal toughening state laws that prohibit businesses from selling synthetic stimulants nicknamed “bath salts” or other drugs that mimic marijuana.
House members voted 94-0 Monday in favor of the bill under which retailers could lose their business licenses for a year if they're caught selling those drugs. The license provision would apply in cases in which someone was convicted of selling the drugs as part of the retail outlet's normal business.
The bill adds several chemical compounds to a law that legislators passed last year banning marijuana-like drugs known as spice or K2. It also allows the state pharmacy board to declare a substance is a synthetic drug.
The bill now goes to Gov. Mitch Daniels for his consideration.
