Vermont Expands Ban on Bath Salts
The Vermont Department of Health has issued an emergency rule to further crack down on the sale of designer drugs known as bath salts.
Governor Peter Shumlin's office announced that the Health Department will expand the list of bath salt and compounds that are illegal to sell, make or possess in the state to include derivatives.
The Governor said the new language is intended to prevent manufacturers of the substances from “tweaking” the chemical compounds to avoid arrest.
A previous rule banned 86 designer drugs. The new rule will be in effect for 120 days while the Health Department works to make it permanent through an administrative rule making process.
