Illinois could ban a type of synthetic marijuana known as “K2” “spice” or “pot pourri” this week.
The Illinois legislature has already passed a law banning the substance, which is usually composed of herbs sprayed with a synthetic chemical that mimics the effects of cannabis.
Governor Quinn needs only to sign it, according to mystateline.com.
Legislation was sparked by safety concerns. The drug is unregulated and hasn’t been tested, and emergency room doctors have been seeing increased traffic due to the drug, according to reports.
