BILL NUMBER:S3322

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public health law, in relation to establishing certain
additional substances as Schedule I opiate controlled substances

PURPOSE:
To prohibit the sale or distribution of any product containing,
3,4-Methylenedioxyrnethcathinone (Methylone), 3,4-
Methyenedixypyrovalerone (MDPV), 4- Methymethcathinone (Mephedrone),
4- methoxymethcathinone, 4-Fluronnethcathinone, 3-Fluoromethcathinone.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section One- Subdivision (b) of Schedule I of section 3306 of the
public health law is amended by adding six new paragraphs
56,57,58,59,60 and 61.

Section Two- Sets forth the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Many recent news reports have brought to light the use of products
claiming to be bath salts as a drug. Some of the names that the pseudo
bath salts have been sold under are Cloud Nine, Scarface, White Dove,
Charge +, White Lightning, Ivory Wave, Hurricane Charlie, Red Dove,
and Ocean. These products can be purchased legally through the mail
or on the Internet.
The product is marketed as bath salts or plant food. However, through
the Internet, consumers of this product are able to find out how to
use this product as a drug.

This drug is snorted by users who then experience a high. However, it
is being reported that users of this product are having disturbing
side effects that are lasting days after ingesting drug. Some of the
side effects include extreme paranoia, hallucinations, delusions,
agitations, hypertension, chest pains, headaches and suicidal thoughts.

This bill will not outlaw true bath salts that are on the market. When
comparing ingredients of real bath salts (Boots Botanics Invigorating
Bath Salts, Burt's Bees Therapeutic Bath Crystals, etc) to the pseudo
bath salts there is no mention of any of the following chemicals:
3,4-Methylenedioxymethcathinone (Methylone), 3,4-
Methyenedixypyrovalerone (MDPV), 4Methymethcathinone (Mephedrone), 4-
methoxymethcathinone, 4-Flurormethcathinone, 3-Fluoromethcathinone. In
the fake bath salts at least one of the above chemicals is mentioned
in the ingredients.

Products containing 3,4-Methylenedioxymethcathinone (Methylone),
3,4Methyenedixypyrovalerone (MDPV), 4- Methymethcathinone
(Mephedrone), 4methoxymethcathinone, 4-Flurormethcathinone,
3-Fluoromethcathinone have already been banned in the United Kingdom
as well as Australia and Canada, Florida, North Dakota and Louisiana
has already banned these substances and there is pending legislation
in Kentucky and Oklahoma as of January 2011.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:


This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the thirtieth (30) day
after it shall have become law.
