Synthetics, also known as ‘legal highs’, ‘bath salts’ or ‘designer drugs’, are increasingly attracting the attention of police and other regulatory authorities.

Synthetic drugs aim to mimic the effect of common recreational substances such as cannabis, MDMA or methylamphetamine.

While many people believe synthetic drugs are legal, this is not the case in Queensland.

The penalties for synthetic drugs offences are the same as for other dangerous drugs.

It isn’t unusual for penalties of imprisonment to be imposed where there’s a commercial element to the offending.

Early legal advice, together with a targeted intervention strategy, can make a huge difference to the outcome.
