Sixteen Georgians have been sickened recently by potentially lethal synthetic drugs, state officials say.

The Brunswick area has seen all but two of the cases, with most of the victims having smoked an “herbal incense’’ marketed as “Crazy Clown.’’

In this new GHN Commentary, state Sen. Buddy Carter says Georgia must keep up the fight against these dangerous drugs. Legislative attempts to solve the problem have had only limited success, says Carter, a pharmacist.

“The time has come for us to think outside the box,’’ he writes. “We must consider other ways to combat this growing epidemic.’’

Here is a link to Carter’s Commentary.
