Sale of synthetic marijuana banned in Dearborn Co.

LAWRENCEBURG, IN (FOX19) - The selling of synthetic marijuana is now against Dearborn County ordinance.

Dearborn County Commissioners passed a ban in February on the sale of packages marked Spice, K2, Mr. Nice Guy, Voodoo and others. The product is marketed as incense, but can give users a marijuana-like high when smoked. It can be purchased as gas stations and convenience stores.

The ordinance went into effect on March 15. Anyone caught selling the product could face a fine.
