TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – U-47700, a synthetic drug that has been involved in multiple deaths, is now banned.

Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Tuesday the outlawing of the psychoactive substance.

“Synthetic drugs are ruining lives and destroying families, and we must do everything in our power to protect Floridians from these dangerous substances—that is why, today, I have emergency scheduled U-47700, and will continue to work with law enforcement to identify and outlaw harmful synthetic drugs as they appear,” said Bondi, in a news release.
