Radinovich, Ward support bill to fight synthetic drugs


The Minnesota House of Representatives Wednesday passed legislation (HF 2446) aimed at combating synthetic drugs on a unanimous, bipartisan vote, according to a news release from Rep. John Ward, DFL-Baxter, and Rep. Joe Radinovich, DFL-Crosby.

Minnesota has seen the growth in the use of these synthetic drugs — cathinones (a.k.a. Bath Salts) and cannabinoids (a.k.a. Synthetic “Marijuana”) — which have endangered the state’s drug abuse prevention efforts.
