Synthetic Drugs

Minneapolis & St. Paul Synthetic Drugs Lawyer

It was not long ago that synthetic drugs hit the drug market, being touted as a way to get the same type of high without the harmful effects of the ingredients of the drugs they are trying to mimic. Unfortunately, it was found that the ingredients in the synthetic drugs can be as harmful, if not more harmful, than the real drugs.

Common names for synthetic drugs include “bath salts,” “incense,” or “spice” and they are illegal in Minnesota. At one time, they were hard to regulate because their chemical compositions would frequently change, but the law is evolving and that is making it easier for prosecutors to pursue individuals found possessing, distributing, or selling synthetic drugs. This is causing such cases to be seen more in court than they once were.
