Shops that sell drug paraphernalia will likely need to replace a best-selling product soon. A bill is speeding through the state legislature to make synthetic alternatives to marijuana illegal. The products are often called K2 or spice and sold as incense. But they’re smoked like marijuana, and some who have tried K2 experienced a potent high with scary side effects.
The Senate has passed the bill and the House is debating it. If it passes, synthetic marijuana could be illegal in North Carolina by April.
