Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Penalties for possession, sale, gift, distribution or possession with intent to sell, give or distribute synthetic cannabinoids; bath salts.  Lists those chemicals that comprise synthetic cannabinoids and makes possession a Class 1 misdemeanor.   Possession with intent to distribute and manufacturing are felonies. The first offender statute applies as it does to marijuana and controlled substances. The bill criminalizes privately compounding with the specific intent to circumvent the criminal penalties for synthetic cannabinoids. The bill also allows restitution for cleaning up sites where the drug is made. A number of Code sections are amended for the purpose of treating synthetic cannabinoids as marijuana is treated throughout the Code. The bill adds chemicals known as "bath salts" to Schedule I of the Drug Control Act. There is an emergency clause. This bill incorporates HB 1473, HB 1481, HB 1878, HB 1778, HB 1423, and HB 1427. This bill is identical to SB 745.
