Bryan now has a new drug law on the books, and city offi­cials say they are plan­ning to strictly enforce it in an effort to keep drugs out of the city.

On Mon­day, Bryan City Coun­cil approved an ordi­nance ban­ning the man­u­fac­ture, sale, dis­tri­b­u­tion and pos­ses­sion of syn­thetic drugs and syn­thetic drug looka­like sub­stances.

The new law becomes effec­tive in three days. Vio­la­tion of the ordi­nance will be a first degree mis­de­meanor pun­ish­able by a fine of up to $1,000 and 180 days in jail.
