Last week the Pinal County Attorney’s office unveiled a plan to remove synthetic drugs such as Spice and Bath Salts from retailers in Pinal County. The plan calls for merchants to sign an agreement not to sell synthetic drugs.

All of the merchants in Superior have signed the agreement and only one store had Spice on their shelves. That merchant voluntarily turned over 50 vials of the synthetic substance and committed to never sell it again.

The Superior Police Department has been doing all they can to follow the plan which includes visiting local retail stores to see if the drugs are being sold. If the drugs are found the retailer is asked to voluntarily turn them over to local law enforcement.

Stores that are not selling the drugs are asked to sign a protection agreement agreeing not to sell the novelty drugs. With the new agreement in place merchants who continue to sell the synthetic drugs can be charged both criminally and civilly.

“We have not seen very much use of these drugs in Superior, but have had a few instances where the drugs were confiscated during unrelated arrests,” explained Lou Digirolamo the Superior Police Chief.
