Education Campaign Warns Teens Against Using Synthetic Drugs.

The AP (5/9) reported, “A new public education campaign in Iowa is warning teenagers and their parents of the dangers of synthetic drugs, which are created to mimic marijuana, cocaine and other illegal substances. Officials from law enforcement, public health and drug control policy announced the Speak Out Against Synthetic Drugs campaign on Monday.” Indeed, the state “bans several forms of synthetic drugs, but new varieties that skirt the state’s definition and retain all the potent effects continue to pop up.”
