Iowa Law Prohibiting Synthetic Drugs

The Sioux City Police Department would like to notify the public that as of July 29, 2011, Iowa law prohibits the manufacture, delivery, possession with intent to deliver, and possession of synthetic cannabinoids. This includes bath salts, K2 products, and salvia divinorum.

The penalty for the manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver any of these substances to a juvenile is a Class B felony and to an adult is an aggravated misdemeanor.  The maximum sentence for a Class B felony is up to 25 years in prison. The maximum sentence for an aggravated misdemeanor is up to two years in prison and a $6,250 fine.  The penalty for possession of these substances is a serious misdemeanor.   The maximum sentence for a serious misdemeanor is 365 days in jail and $1,875 fine. 


 

Please be aware that Iowa Code Chapter 124A prohibits imitation controlled substances.  Imitation controlled substances are defined as “a substance which is not a controlled substance, but which by color, shape, size, markings, and other aspects of dosage unit appearance, and packaging or other factors, appears to be or resembles a controlled substance.”

Iowa Code section 703.4 states that “an employer or employer’s agent, officer, director, or employee who supervises or directs the work of other employees, is guilty of the same public offense committed by an employee acting under the employer’s control, supervision, or direction..”
