6 new synthetic drugs banned in Florida

Six new synthetic drugs are now banned in Florida.

A new law now makes it a 3rd degree felony for anyone selling, making or possessing the drugs.

Synthetic drugs are substances that mimic the effects of drugs like marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamine.
But the chemical compounds are slightly different, making it easier in the past for manufacturers to go around drug laws and sell the products.

The law also added three compounds that are most commonly found in the street drug "molly" to the trafficking statute.
