Synthetic Drug Emergency Rules

Indiana Code 25-26-13-4.1 gives the Indiana Board of Pharmacy the authority to adopt emergency rules declaring a substance to be a synthetic drug if the substance has been scheduled or emergency scheduled by the DEA or scheduled, emergency scheduled, or criminalized by another state.
