MONROE - A new ordinance increases the number of synthetic cannabinoids - substances that are marketed as "safe," legal alternatives to illicit drugs - that are banned in the city. The Monroe Common Council voted unanimously Tuesday to repeal and recreate the city ordinance regarding synthetic cannabinoids. The change will bring the city ordinance into compliance with the updated state statute banning specific kinds of these fake drugs, including bath salts, Ecstasy (or Molly), heroin and cocaine.
