The Drug Enforcement Administration is extending its ban on five chemicals used to make synthetic drugs such as Spice for another six months. The drugs are marketed as herbal incense under such names as K2, Blaze, Spice and Red X Dawn and most commonly used by teenagers and young adults.
The DEA says the products are made of plant material coated with chemicals that claim to mimic THC, the key ingredient in marijuana.
The DEA’s emergency action means the chemicals are designated as Schedule 1 substances, the most restrictive category of drugs under the Controlled Substances Act.
If you have been charged with possession or possession with intent to distribute, contact Baton Rouge Drug Charge Lawyer Carl Barkemeyer to discuss your case.
