Its known as fake pot or synthetic marijuana. Soon, it will be just as illegal in Missouri as the real thing.
In West Plains, MO on June 29th, 2010, Gov. Jay Nixon signed a bill making the product known as K2 a controlled substance, with possession punishable by jail or fine.
The law bans synthetic compounds that are sprayed on dried herbs and flowers often sold as incense. The product produces a marijuana-like high when smoked or inhaled. It is sold in smoke shops and gas stations around the state.
Missouri becomes the fifth state to criminalize synthetic compounds that mimic the effects of marijuana. Kansas enacted the first ban in March.
The new law will go into effect August 28, 2010.
