Proposed ban of all synthetic cannabinoids in New Jersey

Proposed ban of all synthetic cannabinoids in New Jersey

  1. Rob Cypher
    In New Jersey, officials announced on 11/30/2012 that they were implementing one of the nation’s most specific cannabinoid bans yet, with a regulation that describes down to the molecular structure exactly what they now consider to be illegal.

    “We were the fourth state to have a comprehensive ban of synthetic marijuana that covers all possible variants of it,” a spokesperson for the New Jersey Attorney General’s office told Raw Story. “We looked really closely at what they've done in other states and looked at how their language named specific chemicals, but also the catch-all language… banning any other compound that affects the brain similarly to marijuana.”

    New Jersey’s ban, which is likely to be replicated in other states, describes in great detail numerous synthetic cannabinoids on its list of newly “controlled dangerous substances".
