2.0 Era to End in Louisiana on August 15, 2011
Yesterday the LA legislature voted to ban those pesky bath oils and synthetic varieties that slipped through the first ban in August 2010. The bill seems to be more all encompassing than the first ban. The new law is set to go into effect on August 15, 2011.
A bill to outlaw herbal incense products that produce a marijuana-like high when smoked is on its way to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s desk for a signature after the Senate approved it unanimously on Monday.
Speaking to a Mushroom employee by phone, who was very nice, she indicated the Mushroom is studying the ruling before announcing their new strategy.
House Bill 173 by Rep. Ricky Templet Jr., R-Gretna, would ban synthetic cannabinoids that are sold over-the-counter in convenience stores and head shops under brand names like “K2,” “Spice” and “Mojo.” Law enforcement officers told legislators that use of the products has been spreading rapidly in recent months, particularly among teens.
Senators voted 32-0 to approve the bill, which bans the production, use, manufacture or possession of the synthetic substance, and provides penalties similar to those for marijuana.
