MINNESOTA LEGISLATIVE NOTEBOOK: House OKs final synthetic drug regulation billA proposal cracking down on synthetic drugs neared the finish line Friday when the House accepted the latest bill 117-6. The Senate needs to consider the final version of the bill before it can go to the governor for his signature. The bill makes selling certain synthetic drugs, compounds meant to mimic the effects of the actual drugs, a five-year felony offense. It currently is a gross misdemeanor.
