Introduced by: Ryan T. McDougle | all patrons    ...    notes | add to my profiles

SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Penalties for possession, sale, gift, distribution or possession with intent to sell, give or distribute synthetic marijuana.  Creates a new category for “synthetic marijuana” as a series of controlled substances listed in Schedule I (§ 54.1-3446) of the Drug Control Act (§ 54.1-3400 et seq.). Notwithstanding the provisions regarding punishment for possession and distribution of controlled substances listed in Schedule I, punishment for possession and distribution of synthetic marijuana is largely in accord with the provisions for actual marijuana. However, except where synthetic marijuana is specifically exempted, it will fall under provisions in the Virginia Code that refer to controlled substances. This bill has been incorporated into SB 745.
