Governor Signs SB 1283 Making the Possession of “Bath Salts” an Infraction

csleaOn September 16, 2014,  Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1283, by Senator Kathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton), making the possession of synthetic drugs like “bath salts” an infraction, with a maximum fine of $250.  It is already a misdemeanor to possess these substances for sale, or manufacture or sell them. 

“While the penalties in SB 1283 were watered down as the bill moved through the legislative process,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association President  Alan Barcelona, “At least the bill makes it clear it is illegal to possess these substances for personal use.”
