MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar is proposing legislation that would ban a synthetic drug that killed one Minnesotan last week and sent 10 others to the hospital.

Klobuchar says Monday that the drug called 2C-E should be illegal.

Klobuchar already co-sponsored legislation that would permanently ban chemicals found in synthetic marijuana and other drugs. She says she’ll work to include a ban on 2C-E in the existing bill.

Klobuchar says it’s time to take action before these substances endanger more lives.

Last Thursday, 19-year-old Trevor Vance Robinson of Coon Rapids died, just one day after taking 2C-E at a party in Blaine. Others were having trouble breathing and appeared to be hallucinating.
