The state senate passed legislation Tuesday that criminalizes the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana and “bath salts.”

In 2011, the legislators took a strong role to address the issue of these hallucinogenic drugs being sold in New York, and were able to pass a strong measure that Governor Cuomo signed into law.

They believe the new measure to close that technicality is a strong response to protect families and law enforcement personnel.
