Legal synthetic drugs more dangerous than the illegal drugs they mimic

Hillsborough County Commissioners in Florida are moving forward with a proposed ordinance that would provide law enforcement with another tool in the battle against synthetic drugs.

With synthetic drugs, such as bath salts, K2 and Spice, becoming a major concern throughout Hillsborough, commissioners directed staff last summer to create a law that would help law enforcement agencies shut down the flow of the chemically created drugs within the county...

The county’s reasons for wanting to do so are summed up in the proposed ordinance:

Synthetic drugs may be more potent and dangerous than the controlled substances they are designed to mimic due to the unapproved chemicals and chemical compounds contained within them."

Which poses the question: Why not legalize the safe and natural drugs instead of moving to ban the synthetic drugs? You are only digging the hole deeper when your first instinct is to ban everything.

Hello:

Of the long history of psychedelics, little can be found regarding deaths. Yet, the synthetics, bath salts, spice, etc. are associated with significant numbers of deaths. I agree with your response, jamesk.

Sincerely,

James Shields
