A proposed bill in the State House is aimed at getting certain products of store shelves.

The measure would classify synthetic drugs as controlled substances making them illegal.

One Western Kentucky lawmaker says he's had 2 young people in his area die after using synthetic drug products.

Some of the products targeted by the legislation includes Spice Gold, Spice Silver and Yucatan Fire.

The products are usually found in specialty stores in Kentucky.
