ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota House on Wednesday passed a bill that addresses the problem of synthetic drugs by giving state and local law enforcement more weapons to use in controlling the sale of such products.  The bill was authored by State Representative Erik Simonson of Duluth and was crafted by the Select Committee on Controlled Substances and Synthetic Drugs.  Simonson also served as chair of that committee and held hearings around the state to get testimony from those most affected by synthetic drugs.  The bill passed unanimously and now moves on to the State Senate.
