Committee assignments

2010-2012 committees:

Issues

Banning "Spice"

Herring introduced a bill for the 2011 General Assembly session to ban the synthetic marijuana nicknamed K2 or Spice.

“There’s a reason stores are putting it on their shelves — because teens and young adults are buying it and smoking it,” said Sen. Mark Herring, D- Leesburg, who introduced a bill to ban the substance.

Synthetic marijuana was created in the 1990’s in a lab at Clemson University and has been available for several years, but a nationwide move to ban the substances is only now gaining ground.

If the bill passes, Virginia will become the 11th state regulating the product.

Del. Garrett said he became concerned with “K2” after hearing reports from law enforcement about people coming into the emergency room after smoking it.

One young man was “taken to the emergency room and couldn’t move his arms and legs,” Garrett said.[2]
