On Tuesday, June 19, 2012, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed a series of bills aimed at curbing a newly emerging narcotics and drug problem in Michigan. More specifically, the governor signed new laws banning Spice and K2, and similar synthetic drugs. The new laws aim to curb the chemicals used to make the drugs and give the state the ability to temporarily ban drugs that are found to be an imminent danger to people's health.
K2 and Spice have been in the news lately because of several high profile criminal cases in Metro Detroit. Narcotics and drug cases can be complex. Therefore, it is important for people to know their legal rights. If caught and charged under these new laws, people can face serious consequences, including incarceration.
