SB 294 by Sen. Rob Bradly, dealing with synthetic drugs unanimously passed its first of four committee meetings last week. This bill expands the Schedule I Controlled Substances list to make illegal 22 new formulas for synthetic drugs. These formulas were included in Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Emergency Order issued on December 11, 2012. Its House companion bill, HB619 by Rep. Clay Ingram, will be heard in Criminal Justice subcommittee next Tuesday, its first of three committee stops. FAC is strongly supporting both bills.
