Federal officials consider banning chemicals in synthetic marijuana

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The federal government is moving to outlaw that new synthetic version of marijuana.  It's called many things, from Spice to K2.

Iowa banned it back in July, reclassifying it as a schedule one drug.

K2 is supposed to be an incense, but many teens are smoking it because it gives a high similar to marijuana.

What officials at the federal level are doing is reclassifying the chemicals used in making it.  They're working on a one-year ban, which could take effect before the end of the year.
