Attorney General Bondi Applauds Governor Scott for Signing Bath Salts Bill

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Attorney General Pam Bondi issued the following statement on the signing of the Bath Salts Bill (HB 1039) by Governor Scott:

“Since the temporary ban in January, which made the use and sale of a new synthetic drug known as ‘bath salts’ illegal, we have seen a decrease in the number of reported medical emergencies related to this drug,” said Attorney General Bondi. “I thank Senator Wise and Representative Patronis for sponsoring this legislation and Governor Scott for signing this bill that will permanently ban the use of ‘bath salts’ and further protect the lives of Floridians.”
