In March, the DEA banned for one year the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana, which is commonly known by its brand names "Spice" and "K2." The DEA said its action was necessary to "avoid an imminent hazard to the public safety."
Possessing or selling synthetic marijuana is now illegal as the DEA and Department of Health and Human Services study whether the substance should be regulated on a permanent basis.
I remember a while ago before the ban my friend bought some. It tasted/smelled like ass.
