LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The sale and possession of certain synthetic drugs that go by names including K-2 and BZP would be banned by legislation approved by the Michigan Legislature.
The state House overwhelmingly approved final versions of the bills Thursday, sending them to Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
K-2 has been described as a marijuana-like substance but some lawmakers say it's been known to cause stronger, more serious reactions than marijuana typically does. The drug is sometimes sold as potpourri or incense but users know it can be smoked.
BZP is a stimulant sometimes marketed as Ecstasy and sold in cartoon shapes so they look like children's vitamins or candy.
