Emergency ban on K2 takes effect

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The Iowa Board of Pharmacy placed an emergency ban on a marijuana like substance.

K-2 is suppose to be an incense but many teens and others smoke it because it gives you a "high" similar to marijuana.

Indianola teen, David Rozga smoked it with friends the night of June 6th.

Later that night, David shot and killed himself.

His parents and authorities believe the teenager died because of the effects caused by K-2.

The emergency ban will go into effect Wednesday

Lawmakers will re-visit the issue in January.
