More synthetic drugs off shelves today

More synthetic drugs must be off the shelves from today, with the Government adding four more synthetic cannabinoids to their list of banned products.
Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne has added four chemicals to his temporary drug notice which was introduced to the Misuse of Drugs Act last year.
The newly-banned chemicals are CB-13, MAM-2201, AKB48 and XLR11 and one of the products affected is one called Tai High.
That brings the total to 28 banned substances, and 50 synthetic cannabis products have been taken off the market since August last year.
Mr Dunne says he advises people to stay away from all synthetic cannabis products and anyone found selling products containing the chemicals could face legal action.
