Madison, WI (NNCNOW.com) - A new Wisconsin law signed by the Governor Scott Walker Wednesday strengthens the ban on synthetic marijuana.
Lawmakers say the bill provides tools for law enforcement to prosecute sellers of illegal drugs.
The measure provides a more comprehensive list of illegal substances based on what crime labs are seeing.
It also puts an end to a loophole, in which a drug's chemistry is altered to avoid prosecution.
Similar legislation is also currently making its way through the Minnesota Capitol.
