Another Bath Salt Ban
New Smyrna Beach is just another city to attempt to stop the use of synthetic drugs that mimic illegal substances. The small town has proposed legislation to ban the sale and distribution of bath salts and incenses. The local police would have the authority to ticket offenders a fine of up to $500 for each violation.
There are already similar laws through the United States, but some town officials decline to approve ordinances for fear that the language in the measure was overly broad and could ban legitimate substances.
New Smyrna Beach police have reported an increase in the use of synthetic drugs since laws to stop prescription pill abuse have taken affect. Synthetic drugs often mimic the effects of illegal stimulants, and the damage to the body can be just as fatal.
The highs in synthetic drugs are similar to those from cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy. Police are becoming more worried because these synthetic drugs are made in backyard laboratories, and there is no way to know what is really in the final product.
