N. Arizona county bans synthetic drug sales

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — A northern Arizona judge has granted a permanent
injunction to ban all known retailers from selling synthetic drugs in Yavapai
County.

County Superior Court Judge Michael Bluff’s 12-page ruling declared the drugs
that go by the street names of “spice” and “bath salts” to be a public
nuisance.

The injunction bans all identified retailers and property landlords named in a
lawsuit from possessing, acquiring, selling or transferring the dangerous
synthetic drugs.

Efforts to permanently outlaw dangerous synthetic drugs in Yavapai County began
last August when the county Attorney’s Office obtained an emergency temporary
restraining order.

Doctors from the Yavapai Regional Medical Center and the Verde Valley Medical
Center said the county’s emergency rooms were averaging 20 admissions per week of
people under the influence of the drugs.
