Synthetic cannabinoid compounds relegated to DEA’s banned substances list
have been banned by Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals. Three of those compounds have also been banned by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. “Synthetic drugs have proven to be a devastating element in our communities,” said Louisiana State Police Superintendent Colonel Mike Edmonson. “Public safety officials must remain proactive in removing these dangerous drugs from our streets[…].” The compounds that have been banned in Louisiana are PX 1, PX 2 and MDMB-CHMICA. “PX 1, PX 2 and MDMB-CHMICA are new drugs that are already suspected in multiple deaths and numerous hospitalizations in Louisiana,” said La. Poison Control Director Dr. Mark Ryan. In addition, the following compounds have been banned in Louisiana and nationwide, as well as being added to the DEA’s list of Schedule 1 Controlled Dangerous Substances:
