State bill 93 was signed into effect Monday (5/16) and bans the commonly referred to "bath salts" from being sold legally.
Agents say the drugs have stronger hallucinogenic properties
than even methamphetamine.
Says Thomasville-Thomas County Drug Squad Commander Kevin Lee, "We interview people that's [sic] been on meth for years and coke for years and they'll just tell you, this is the worst stuff, man. It just makes them extremely, extremely violent, you hallucinate."
Agents say they'll spend the next few days reading the new bill to understand exactly what it entails.
Drug enforcement agencies in the Florida panhandle have also taken measures to ban the once-available drugs.
