K2 fake weed ban sent to Gov. Jay Nixon for approval
|And so we near the end of legal, fake weed.|
The Missouri House finalized its bill banning K2 synthetic marijuana last night, then sent the legislation on to Gov. Jay Nixon. Assuming Nixon signs it — which is likely — Missouri will become the second state in the nation (after Kansas) to ban the faux-reefer.
The bill aligns penalties for possession of K2 with those in place for possession of real marijuana. Possession of less than 35 grams of pot is a misdemeanor. The new legislation has been described as targeting K2 manufacturers more than than punishing the average smoker.
