On Wednesday, May 7th the DEA raided synthetic drug manufacturers in 29 states. The crackdown was coordinated between more than 45 DEA offices, and hundreds of kilograms of the raw ingredients used to make the drugs were seized. Congress has regulated 26 of the synthetic drug combinations, but the drug manufacturers change the chemical formula of the drug as quickly as the regulations are passed. The problem is that very little, if any research goes into the changes they make to the drugs, or the short and long term effects. The manufacturers label the drugs as "Not for Human Consumption" to bypass FDA regulations, but people are still use them.
