JUNEAU — The House Judiciary Committee forwarded a bill to ban synthetic cannabinoids to the House Finance Committee on Friday.
The bill was proposed by Rep. Cathy Muñoz, R-Juneau.
Since a previous hearing, Muñoz had amended her bill to require less severe penalties for possessing the cannabinoids.
After testimony from law enforcement experts on how best to classify the drug, Muñoz’ bill was sent to the Finance Committee.
