(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana’s Senate could vote Monday to send a bill banning synthetic marijuana to the governor’s desk.
Products containing synthetic cannabinoids – marketed as incense under brand names like “K2” or “Spice” - are sold at many convenience stores. They can create a marijuana-like high when smoked.
The law would make possessing or selling Spice just as illegal as real marijuana.
A number of southeast Indiana county and city governments have passed ordinances banning the sale of Spice in recent months, but those only hand out fines and not jail time.
The Indiana House has already passed the bill.
