Synthetic Drugs Should Be Dropped At Indiana State Police Posts

Last updated on Friday, March 23, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Authorities say anyone in possession of synthetic drugs outlawed when Governor Mitch Daniels signed a new law into effect last week can dispose of them in at any Indiana State Police post through Sunday.

State police Captain David Bursten says it is not an amnesty period and retailers should already have the products removed from shelves and safely secured until they can be properly disposed. He says the goal is to make sure the drugs aren't discarded in places where children could find them.

Bursten says no one has to worry about being arrested when bringing the drugs to the nearest state police post for proper disposal.

He also warns that undercover officers will be going to retail stores to make sure the products are no longer being sold.
