Savannah, GA– The Glynn County Police Department submitted several packages labeled “Crazy Clown”’, marketed as an herbal incense product, to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Crime Lab in Savannah.  The laboratory analyzed the material in these packages to determine if a controlled substance was present.    The analysis confirmed the presence of a new synthetic cannabinoid, ADB-PINACA.  Confirmation of this new compound by the GBI Crime Lab is the first known instance of this particular synthetic cannabinoid in the U.S.  The ADB-PINACA compound is categorized as a Schedule I substance by O.C.G.A 16-30-31 as part of Chase’s Law which was passed by the Georgia General Assembly in the 2012 session.
