S.D. County Officials Seek To End Sales of Synthetic Drugs
On Tuesday, San Diego County law enforcement officials sent letters warning local retailers to stop selling illegal designer synthetic drugs known as "spice" and "bath salts." The letters stated that retailers face fines or jail time if they continue to sell the drugs, which have been found to cause violent behavior, heart attacks and seizures. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed bills last year to curb sales of such substances.
