House votes to fight synthetic drugs
ST. PAUL — Minnesota representatives sent a strong message against synthetic drugs Wednesday, unanimously passing a bill to give a state agency more authority over them.
“If you are not seeing this in your community, it is because you are not looking hard enough,” Rep. Erik Simonson, D-Duluth, told fellow lawmakers.
The bill that passed 130-0 now moves to the Senate.
