OSWEGO COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Oswego County Legislature is cracking down on synthetic drugs. Thursday night, legislators heard from concerned community members as well as families who have been personally impacted by the drugs. Then legislators voted to approve all four resolutions creating local laws.
The first law prohibits the sale and possession of bath salts and synthetic hallucinogens. The second outlaws the sale, distribution and use of drug and alcohol screening test adulterants, which some drug users take to try to test negative when undergoing drug tests.
The third adopts a synthetic drug public nuisance abatement law, which would penalize private businesses found to be selling synthetic drugs and allow for those stores to be shut down after a certain amount of violations. And the finally resolution approved prohibits the sale and possession of salvia divinorum.
