(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Attorney General Mike DeWine applauded the efforts of State Rep. Clayton Luckie, D-Dayton, on the bill he introduced today to make certain chemicals found in bath salts a Schedule I controlled substance under Ohio law.
"Ingesting bath salts is a new way for people to get the same kind of high as they would from doing cocaine. Bath salts are far too easy to buy and the after effects can be deadly," said DeWine. "I am committed to working with Rep. Luckie to help pass this legislation to get these bath salts out of the marketplace."
"By banning the addictive substances in bath salts, this is just one more measure to ensure that our young people will not be harmed by products that are so easily and readily available," added Rep. Luckie.
