Pennsylvania’s bath salt-banning law now in effect

    It’s been 60 days already since Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett signed the state’s bath salt ban. The law is in effect as of today, adding the designer drug to the state’s list of controlled substances.

    Possession of the substance will get you up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Selling bath salts yields bigger penalties: up to five years in jail and a $15,000 fine.
