With packaging that is inviting, colorful and creative, Spice, Scooby Snax and K2 is sold in more than 1,200 retailers across the city of Baltimore. This is who the new law will be targeting; stores that sell synthetic drugs. These drugs are synthetic dried leaves and herbs sprayed with a chemical. Many users are ending up with dangerous side effects and ending up in the emergency rooms in Maryland.
The new law that was signed by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake would penalize anyone caught selling those synthetic drugs. “It seizes any product suspected of being a synthetic drug with a $1,000 fine per package and it allows for the suspension or revocation of the license of a retailer licensed by the health department,” the mayor said.
Stores that remove the drugs voluntarily will not face any penalties.
