ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - A joint hearing by three Minnesota House Committees on synthetic drugs is being held Wednesday at the State Capitol.  A state ban on such substances that mimic the effects of illegal drugs has been thwarted by rapidly changing chemical formulations.  Duluth Representative Erik Simonson says lawmakers are now thinking of a law that would ban anything that looks like, acts like or has the same impact as outlawed drugs.  He says a current law that takes that approach in Indiana is now being challenged in court.
