The Lubbock City Council will meet on Thursday and on the agenda will be synthetic drugs. A proposed ordinance would criminalize the sale, possession, and use of synthetic marijuana & other so called designer drugs. According to reports, Mayor Glen Robertson believes the ordinance will pass. The Mayor believes that everyone will support the measure except for himself. Why doesn’t he support the measure? Because the proposed ordinance also prohibits adults from selling, possessing, and using synthetic drugs. The Mayor believes that it’s not the council’s job to tell adults what they can and can’t do to their own bodies.
So where do you come down on the issue? Do you think synthetic drugs should be banned for everyone, or just those under the age of 18?
