TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law a measure that adds 27 new designer drugs to the state's controlled substances list.

The bill (HB 619) was signed on Wednesday. The new law now makes it a third-degree felony for someone to make or sell the drugs, or possess them with intent to sell.

Attorney General Pam Bondi explained that the drugs have street names such as "incense," "potpourri," "K2," "spice" and "bath salts."

The synthetic drugs can cause hallucinations, seizures, paranoia and psychotic episodes, among other symptoms.
