Establishes a synthetic cannabinoid and substituted cathinone surrender program and relates to controlled substances.

BILL NUMBER:S1686

TITLE OF BILL: An act to establish a synthetic cannabinoid and
substituted cathinone surrender program; to amend the public health
law and the penal law, in relation to controlled substances; to repeal
certain provisions of the public health law, relating to controlled
substances; and providing for the repeal of certain provisions upon
expiration thereof

PURPOSE: To classify synthetic cannabinoids (the herb-like products
that contain synthetic cannabinoids often known as K2, Spike 99,
Spice, Yucatan Fire, Genie, Zohai and many others) and substituted
cathinones (these products, often referred to as "bath salts," are
chemically related to methamphetamines and ecstasy - which are both
classified as stimulants) as controlled substances under the public
health law and the penal law, and to create a Statewide Synthetic
Cannabinoid and substituted Cathinone Surrender Program to allow for
surrender of these harmful substances to appropriate authorities.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Adds nine classes of synthetic cannabinoids,
based on foundational chemical structures, to the controlled
Substances Act (CSA)- which should address the current practice of
making minor alterations to chemicals to subvert statutes that
prohibit distinct substances. Makes penalties for possession and sale
similar to marijuana. These substances are similar to marijuana in how
they are used, the neurochemical impact they illicit, and the
quantities in which they are sold.

Adds substituted cathinones to the CSA based on foundational chemical
structures - which should address the current practice of making minor
alterations to chemicals to subvert statutes that prohibit distinct
chemicals. A direct reference to "methcathinone" is removed because it
fits within the class. Makes penalties for possession and sale similar
to other stimulants, because these products often referred to as "bath
salts," are chemically related to methamphetamines and ecstasy - which
are both classified as stimulants.

Requires provisions to allow for the surrender of these substances
during the 90 day period after enactment of the law to the appropriate
authorities, and requires that a database be maintained to increase
awareness of these products and their harmful effects.

EXISTING LAW: Currently, these products are not prohibited under
either the public health law or the penal law, despite the harm to the
individuals who consume them and the public.

JUSTIFICATION: Many recent news reports have brought to light the use
of a legal herblike product that is laced with a synthetic cannabinoid
that is being smoked by individuals, including teens, known as "fake
weed"; as well as the substituted cathinones, known as "bath salts-"
While producing a high similar to existing controlled substances,
these legal substances can have more dangerous side effects, including
hallucinations, vomiting, agitation, increased heart rate, elevated
blood pressure and other adverse conditions.


Recognizing the health risks associated with use of synthetic
cannabiniods, the State Department of Health has issued an Order for
Summary Action ("Order") prohibiting the sale of substances belonging
to the classes of synthetic cannabiniods identified in this bill.
Citing increased calls to New York State Poison Control centers, and
federal action to prohibit the sale and possession of these dangerous
substances, the Order prohibits retailers from selling such products
-and could allow for the imposition of a fine or other civil penalty
against those who violate the Order.

This bill complements the measures taken under the direction of the
Governor by adding both synthetic cannabinoids, and the even more
dangerous substituted cathinones, to the CSA. Not only does this
provide fox the imposition of criminal sanctions, but also makes it a
felony to sell such products to a minor or on school grounds.
Further, these actions would criminalize possession of such substances
- deterring use by law abiding individuals who may otherwise be
unaware of the harmful effects of these drugs.
