Synthetic Drugs a Problem for Officials

Contrary to efforts by some Kentucky counties, a Franklin County official is hesitant to call synthetic marijuana and bath salts a concern until he has more evidence. While bath salts have been banned in the state, County Attorney Rick Sparks says he would not support adding similar laws locally until he finds evidence the current ban is flawed when it comes to enforcement. Sparks says “the General Assembly spoke,” and he wants to work under the existing law to find if there are violations.
