In addition to adding new chemical compounds as synthetic cannabinoids, the bill adds newly identified structural classes of synthetic cannabinoids so that new chemical compounds that fit within the structural class will nevertheless be considered synthetic cannabinoids without the precise chemical compound having to be added to the Code.
