The State Senate passed a similar ban attached to a different piece of legislation back in February.

State House News reports that lawmakers said they are now confident that they will be able to come together on a bath salt ban in the near future.

The drug made national headlines recently when police suggested that a horrific cannibal attack in Miami may be linked to bath salts.

Thirty-eight states have banned the sale of bath salts.
