MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- Three Wisconsin Senators are working to introduce legislation to strengthen state laws prohibiting synthetic marijuana.
The lawmakers say that the bill has been written over the past nine months.
They say the bill will help close loop holes so police can prosecute the sale of the drugs.
Monday at a press conference one of the bills co-sponsors said constant changes to the way synthetic drugs are made make it hard to get a conviction.
Janet Bewley, of the 74th Assembly District says, "those who make these drugs, they come up with a new formula and they're unable to prosecute. The language in this bill makes it very clear, and it gives chemical compositions , that if it's similar to these, and is sold for the purposes of making people high it is illegal."
The lawmakers said that the bill has gained strong bi-partisan support and they expect the legislature to pass the bill before November.
