New synthetic drugs targeted
ST. PAUL — Minnesota representatives recently sent a strong message against synthetic drugs, unanimously passing a bill to give a state agency more authority over them.
“If you are not seeing this in your community, it is because you are not looking hard enough,” Rep. Erik Simonson, DFL-Duluth, told fellow lawmakers.
The bill that passed 130-0 now moves to the Senate. The Legislature returns to work this week after its Easter/Passover break.
