Panel approves bill to make two more drugs illegal in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky Senate panel has approved a
bill that would outlaw a hallucinogenic herb along with a synthetic
form of marijuana that can be applied to other plants.
The measure approved by the Judiciary Committee on Thursday
would make it illegal to possess, buy, sell or cultivate salvia in
Kentucky.
It also would prohibit the sale, possession or manufacture of
synthetic marijuana, which can be sprayed on herbs that are smoked,
creating the same effect as marijuana.
Van Ingram, director of the Kentucky Office of Drug Control
Policy, told the committee that synthetic marijuana is gaining
popularity, and the state needs to get control of the problem.
Violations would be misdemeanors, but in some cases could result
in a year of jail time.
---
The legislation is Senate Bill 107.
