S.3187 – Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 2012

The federal government finally introduces a bill to ban all synthetic marijuana products.

Fake pot stops here

Specific chemicals banned under the S.3187 – Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 2012

Out of the 63,700 word bill, the following portion is the meat and potatoes. To highlight the stupidity of bureaucracy, the words “jail” and “fine” are found nowhere in the bill. You would think a 63,700 word bill would include penalties. (the word “penalty” is only found once, and out of context of this definition)

All synthetic marijuana products are now schedule 1 in the United States
