Pennsylvania House advances bath salt-banning legislation

    Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett could soon come face-to-face with a bill banning bath salts. After the House passed the bill yesterday, the bill will once more go to the Senate for approval of language changes the House made.

    As Scott Detrow reports for WHYY, the law would ban the synthetic drug, along with synthetic marijuana, and create first- and multiple-offense penalties.
