On Wednesday, New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa announced a statewide ban on all forms of synthetic marijuana, which are combinations of chemicals designed to mimic the effect of marijuana. These drugs were marketed under the names of “K2” and “Spice” and “Space Cadet.”
Under the ban, this drug is considered a controlled dangerous substance and is in a class with cocaine and heroin. Violators would be charged with a Third Degree Crime and thus face three to five years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.
Because these drugs are not regulated by any agency standards, the user has no idea what they are actually taking, and reported side effects range from lung damage to death.
