WHAT ARE THE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES OF USING THESE NEW DRUGS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE?
Because many of these drugs are so new, laws haven’t always been passed yet to ban or regulate their use. In the United States, a law was passed that made it il- legal to make, sell, or possess chemicals that are a lot like other drugs that are already illegal. But designer drugs are often specifically designed to get around legal regulation. They are made from chemical compounds that are not currently illegal but that mimic the effects of other more commonly known drugs (which are illegal).
