Jindal signs bill to criminalize 25-I, synthetic marijuana
The possession, use and distribution of synthetic marijuana and the drug known as 25-I will now carry criminal penalties in Louisiana, after Gov. Bobby Jindal signed into law legislation to add various stimulants and hallucinogens to the state's list of Schedule I drugs.
Act 7 adds more than two dozen hallucinogens to the Schedule I Substance list. The drugs are different chemical iterations of 25-I, a quick-acting synthetic drug responsible for the death of Little Rock native Clayton Otwell at last year's Voodoo Fest in New Orleans.
The drug, also called NBOMe, is chemically similar to LSD and ecstasy, but much more potent. After Otwell's death, the state Department of Health and Hospitals moved to temporarily outlaw the substance at the urging of state Rep. Kevin Pearson, R-Slidell, who authored the Act 7 legislation.
Act 8, also signed into law Thursday, would add various families of synthetic marijuana to the Schedule I Substance list. Certain families of the substance were criminalized by the state in 2010, after which manufacturers of the drug sought to skirt the laws by altering the chemical compositions of the strains.
Called "K2" or "Spice," synthetic marijuana or cannabinoids are natural herbs sprayed with a chemical composition that mimics the effects of tetrahydrocannibol, or THC, the active constituent in marijuana. The drugs have been linked to acute psychosis in some users.
The legislation was introduced by state Rep. Sherman Mack, R-Livingston, after state and local law enforcement noticed an increase in synthetic marijuana distribution in recent years.
Manufacture, possession, use or distribution of a Schedule I substance in Louisiana holds a maximum penalty of 50 years hard labor and $50,000. The penalties for marijuana and synthetic marijuana are slightly lower at 30 years and $50,000.

It's like we're living in some dystopian future. 50 years of hard labor for wanting to feel good. It's honestly terrifying.
Man Louisiana is getting down, but hell half that shit is already illegal on a federal level, I see no point in adding to the states level as well geez. Methoxetamine is on the end of the second page, what a fail Bobby Jindal is a fucking idiot.

...in the USA... keep that in mind. I have heard that Mississippi has the nastiest, roughest, prison systems around. May have changed in the past but agreed that the south ironically has fuct drug laws. They fought a war over freedom of choice.
