BILL
To

(2) The Department of Health may, in pursuit of public health, formally declare any additional drinks to be considered Illicit Alcoholic Substances provided they follow the provisions below:
a. Any declaration naming a substance to be illicit under this act must be done with the signature of the Health Secretary in a government announcement.
b. The ban on such a brew would not take effect until a week after such declaration.
c. The newly banned substance must be edited into the law in the section below for clarity.
