State Representative Wants to Nearly Triple Florida's Controlled-Substances List

There are currently 50 psychoactive compounds banned by Florida as "Schedule I" substances -- meaning the government doesn't believe they have any medical use, and they're illegal for any regular schmo to possess.

State Rep. Clay Ingram would like to add 92 compounds to that list, filing legislation late last week that would create a total of 142 chemicals you can be locked in a cage for years for possessing.

Nearly tripling the list of banned substances may seem like a far-fetched idea, but we were warned just about two months ago that this exact thing might happen.

Boca Raton lawyer Thomas Wright III -- the "incense" lawyer who explained to us the ins and outs of the state's synthetic cannabis laws in November -- said adding tons of chemicals to the list of banned substances was what legislators would try to stop people from using brain-altering compounds.

He told us legislators would go about it one of three ways -- banning the use of research chemicals for intoxication, continuously adding chemicals to the list, or getting creative with some sort of carefully crafted legislation.

It looks like they're taking the laundry-list path, at least with this bill.

And when it comes to a bill like this, it makes Wright look like a synthetic-drug visionary -- he explained to us, specifically, how a drug like DMT was illegal in the state but a synthetic version like 5-MeO-DALT is legal and can be purchased online.

Of the 92 new drugs that would be added to the list in the bill, 12 of them are synthetic tryptamines.

For those of you who still hit the "herbal incense," the bill adds more of those substances with the JWH prefixes that are used in the blends.

As Wright reminded us in November, though, a cop's field test isn't exactly going to identify a substance such as 4'-Methoxy-α-pyrrolidinopropiophenone and would require some expensive lab tests.

However, if you're currently cooking up some sort of exotic drug in your bathtub, here's the list of substances the bill would be banned upon the bill's passing.

You see, this is why I can't take conservatives seriously. I'm all for small government, increased individual liberties, and defending the free market - but conservatives who claim to believe in these principles keep turning around and telling us how important it is for the government to butt in on our business.

If the Florida greasy,lying, legisrats want to make something illegal, make it illegal for a shyster to run for public office.

  Will they ever learn that the war on drugs is counterproductive? All they will end up doing is increasing demand, creating more organized crime, and sending more non-violent Americans to jail where they will learn how to be violent when they get out. We need to be fighting addiction... and actually treating people instead of shoving them under a rug (locking them up). This conservative style of sticking your head in the sand and ignoring the real problem isn't working.

Several of these are used in cancer treatment and one is used oral with my vitamin D that I can not produce any more. So your wish will kill the people who needs these drug to beat cancer and live.

the problem, Pete Pepper, is that the revenue stream generated by incarcerating men and women on marijuana sentences makes it so that changing the law will hurt those who oversee the privately owned prisons where these inmates end up. and god forbid our state and federal prison systems lose a few inmates with an amendment to the law.

if the people in charge of the prisons were to instead own the dispensaries, perhaps feelings would change (that is, if they're not taxed). but so long as someone is making money with marijuana-related arrests, it is unlikely we will see a change in the law. plus, what better reason for an officer to stop a young black male than because he or she "smelled the distinct odor of marijuana emanating from his car"?

I still do not understand why you make some of this illegal.  I have never seen a violent act ever committed while under the influence of marijuana in all my life.  Or someone OD on it.  But I sure have seen the ill effects of alcohol, tobacco, and even sugar.  I rarely, if ever partake, just not that into it.  But the most I have ever wanted to do while under the influence is eat something and watch bad TV.  Unlike while drinking when half the time I just want to smack idiots in the back of the head.Priorities people!  You need a revenue stream.  Legalize it, keep it regulated, and there you go.  Would not be surprised if suddenly there is a drop in drunk driving accidents as well since most pot smokers IF they drive, move REALLY slow.

Don't forget the pharmaceutical companies. They're the biggest money-grubbing whores no one's talking about. There's no way big pharm would allow people to have the technical ability to grow their own medication. That's lunacy! There's no profit in that!

I have OD'd on marijuana.  I ate a half a pound of Cheetos and then slept like a baby for nine hours.
