NJ Rev Stat § 2C:35-5.3b (2013) What's This?

2C:35-5.3b Crimes relative to synthetic cannabinoid; degree.

2. a. It is a crime for any person knowingly or purposely to manufacture, distribute or dispense, or to possess or have under his control with intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense a synthetic cannabinoid.

b.A person who violates subsection a. of this section where the quantity involved, including adulterants and dilutants, is one ounce or more is guilty of a crime of the second degree.

c.A person who violates subsection a. of this section where the quantity involved, including adulterants and dilutants, is less than one ounce is guilty of a crime of the third degree.

d.As used in this chapter, the term, "synthetic cannabinoid" shall include any material, compound, mixture, or preparation that is not included in Schedules I, II, III, IV, and V, other than as a synthetic cannabinoid; is not a federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drug; and contains any quantity of the following substances, their salts, isomers (whether optical, positional, or geometric), homologues (analogs), and salts of isomers and homologues (analogs), unless specifically excepted, whenever the existence of these salts, isomers, homologues (analogs), and salts of isomers and homologues (analogs) is possible within the specific chemical designation:
