Oklahoma synthetic drug legislation

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma city, OK - Oklahoma's House Public Safety Committee has approved a new bill banning more synthetic drugs.

The bill adds 21 new chemical compounds to the list of more than 200 illegal chemicals in the state.

But even the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs acknowledges it may not do much good.

They say agents are forced to play catch up against chemists who continue to create new synthetic drugs that aren't technically illegal yet.
