An Act To Prohibit Sale or Possession of Synthetic Cannabinoids
Sec. 1. 17-A MRSA §1101, sub-§16-B is enacted to read:
For the purposes of this subsection, "chemical analog" means any chemical that is substantially similar in chemical structure to another chemical compound.
Sec. 2. 17-A MRSA §1102, sub-§4, ¶F, as enacted by PL 2011, c. 428, §7 and affected by §9, is amended to read:
This bill defines "synthetic cannabinoid," commonly known as "spice" or "K2," in general terms and lists it as a schedule Z drug. Current law only lists specific chemical compounds that are synthetic cannabinoids, so chemical compounds that are synthetic cannabinoids but differ from the compounds listed in statute are not considered schedule Z drugs and are legal in the State.
