DEA Head Warns of Alarming Increase in Overdoses from Synthetic Drugs

The use of synthetic drugs is reaching alarming levels.

Synthetic designer drugs are causing an alarming number of overdoses, especially among young people, DEA head Chuck Rosenberg told a U.S. Senate Committee. 

The DEA has been trying to curb the use and delivery of synthetic drugs since they became increasingly popular in 2010. Trouble is, synthetic drug makers are churning out products faster than the federal government can ban them, Reuters reports. 

“For every one substance we’ve controlled, legislatively or administratively, there are 11 more out there that are uncontrolled,” Rosenberg said.

“We’re playing catch-up, and we need your help.”

Synthetic drugs include bath salts, counterfeit painkillers and cannabinoids that mimic marijuana.
