Update: K2 synthetic marijuana is officially illegal in the state of Kansas, so Sunflower State business owners better get to destroying their supplies (or smoking them).

The laws criminalizing active compounds JWH-018 and JWH-073 were published today, making them schedule 1 drugs in Kansas. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office issued a press releasing saying it knows “several retailers in the county and surrounding areas that have been selling these products. As of today it will be a felony to continue to do so and the sheriff’s office encourages these retailers to destroy any remaining product they may have in stock. In addition it is a Class A Misdemeanor to be in possession of these drugs.”

In Missouri, the House voted

142-10 Wednesday to outlaw synthetic marijuana products. The bill (H.B. 1472) goes back to the Senate, which has already given initial approval to a ban.
