Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: WAC 246-887-100 adds synthetic cannabinoids and substituted cathinones to Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. Synthetic cannabinoids are sold as incense and are most commonly known as Spice. Substituted cathinones are sold as bath salts and are known by names like Ivory Wave and Zoom. The rule gives law enforcement clear authority to prosecute for the sale, possession, manufacture and delivery of these substances.
