CS/SB 164 — Controlled Substance Testing

by Rules Committee and Senators Polsky, Berman, and Book

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

Prepared by: Criminal Justice Committee (CJ)

The bill amends. s. 893.145, F.S., the drug paraphernalia statute, to exclude from the definition of “drug paraphernalia” narcotic-drug-testing products that are used solely to determine whether a controlled substance contains fentanyl, fentanyl-related compounds, derivatives, and analogs, and mixtures containing any of these substances. This exclusion does not apply to a narcotic-drug-testing product that can measure or determine the quantity, weight, or potency of a controlled substance.

If approved by the Governor, or allowed to become law without the Governor’s signature, these provisions take effect July 1, 2023.

Vote: Senate 39-0; House 116-0
