State lawmakers are taking a tougher stance on synthetic drugs.
A bill was passed this week, making it illegal to have or deal a “lookalike” synthetic drug, such as bath salts.
If the governor signs it, the measure will give state agencies more power to go after businesses caught selling these drugs.
Hoosiers could also be charged with driving under the influence of synthetic drugs if caught by police.
The bill now goes to the governor’s desk.
