LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan House has overwhelmingly approved a ban on use and possession of some street drugs that some lawmakers say are becoming more common in the state.
The Democratic-led chamber passed bipartisan bills Wednesday aimed at cracking down on a marijuana-like substance often called K2.
Another drug covered in the legislation is known as BZP, a stimulant sometimes marketed as Ecstasy and sold in cartoon shapes so they look like children's vitamins or candy.
The bills now go to the Republican-led Senate.
BZP already is banned by the federal government. Several states are considering or passing laws aimed at BZP and K2.
The drug bills are House Bills 6038 and 6226.
