NY sen. calls for crackdown on synthetic marijuana

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A New York State senator is calling for a crackdown on synthetic marijuana.

In July, the American Association of Poison Control Centers issued a warning about the dangers of synthetic marijuana.

Senator Jeff Klein introduced new legislation to strengthen penalties for selling the drug.

He called it a “very real public health threat to New Yorkers, their families and children.”

Doctors said people who take the drug often suffer from extreme paranoia, which leads to fits of violence.
