Spice and Bath Salts Banned in Utah
In November 2010 we reported on the various spice bans in local municipalities and that the Utah State Legislature would be considering a state-wide ban in the 2011 legislative session.
The legislature did pass House Bill 23 in the 2011 General Session that not only included spice, but also included the substances in bath salts in the expanded list of controlled substances. Spice was also added to the driver license provisions regarding driving under the influence.
You can read the committee reports, listen to the floor debates and read the bill as it was introduced as well as the final bill that was passed and signed by the governor here.
