Debate On Copycat Legal Marijuana Spicing Up In Alabama
Convenience stores, gasoline stations and other shops across Alabama have the green light to sell a crumbled, dried plant laced with synthetic cannabis to people of all ages
Convenience stores, gasoline stations and other shops across Alabama have the green light to sell a legal marijuana alternative, a crumbled, dried plant laced with synthetic cannabis, to people of all ages. Buyers of all ages may use the flavored potpourri known by such names as Spice, K2, MF or Coma Candy as a fragrance. Most, however, smoke it to get high off a synthetic chemical that producers spray on the dried plant, which is similar in composition to marijuana. Law enforcement officers pushing to regulate Spice say its effects may be stronger than marijuana, with longer-lasting and potentially more dangerous side effects. State Health Officer Dr. Don Williamson has called a public hearing on Spice for 9:30 a.m. Monday at the state Capitol auditorium in Montgomery.
