Many retailers may be selling products that are known as Bath Salts, Salvia, or Synthetic Marijuana. Although these products may be labeled “Not for human ingestion,” they are being abused. The identified products include: 

  • Bath Salts
    - MDVP (3,4-methylenedioxypyrovalerone)
    - 3,4 methylenedioxy-N-methycathione (methylone)
    - Mephedrone (4-methylmethcathinone) 
  •  Salvia
    - Salvia divinorum
    - Salvinorin A 
  •  Synthetic Marijuana
    - Products known as Spice and K-2 and similar products 

These products are commonly packaged in small foil or plastic envelopes and are marketed under a variety of names. The labels commonly do not list specific active ingredients, as they are not labeled for consumption. These products may indicate that they are an incense or herbal product, and may be offered to retailers as a high-profit item. 

The aforementioned products have recently been “scheduled,” both federally and at the State level, into a Controlled Substance Schedule I. This means that the retail sale or possession of these products is now illegal. 

Continued sale of these products could result in felony charges and/or fines, and may have an impact on your ability to sell over-the-counter medications, or liquor, or participate as a lottery sales agent. 

Products currently in your possession must be withheld from sale and returned to your wholesaler immediately, or destroyed in a non-recoverable manner. 

For more information, please contact the Connecticut Drug Control Division at (860) 713-6065 or at dcp.drugcontrol@ct.gov.
