New York Bans Synthetic Pot By Michael Joseph on April 02, 2012

For as long as New York’s drug laws have outlawed drugs, there have been synthetic forms of the drugs available, which were not technically illegal. Our New York criminal defense lawyers and White Plains criminal defense lawyers have handled numerous drug and narcotics cases.

With a new law in New York, the State is trying to curb synthetic drug use. After the authorities learned that synthetic pot was widely sold throughout New York City as incense or potpourri, a new law was passed which now bans synthetic pot. Synthetic cannabinoids is made in a lab and creates a high similar to marijuana. There is also a federal ban on five of the chemicals used to make synthetic pot, but the law will expire in six months. The new law attaches criminal penalties to synthetic pot.

While technically illegal our New York and Westchester drug case attorneys firmly believe that marijuana should be legal and regulated like cigarettes. Our drug lawyers have successfully handled drug cases in New York City including Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx. Our criminal defense lawyers have also handled numerous drug cases in Westchester and Rockland including White Plains, Yonkers, Mt Pleasant, Mt. Kisco, New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye, Scarsdale, Pelham, Poughkeepsie, Nyack, Bronxville, Greenburgh, Elmsford, Clarkstown and Airmont.
