Montgomery County and Crawfordsville Ban K-2

Montgomery County and Crawfordsville are the two latest Hoosier communities to ban the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana known as K-2 or spice.

The ordinance passed by Montgomery County Commissioners and the City Council of Crawfordsville back in early November is now in effect. Tim Bristol, Outreach Coordinator for the Montgomery County AHEAD coalition, a group advocating against drug abuse says the ban was put in place after rising problems with it being sold throughout the county.

“And then, when our neighboring counties, Boone County, Tippecanoe County passed pretty stringent bands, we were becoming the center of spice trade,” Bristol said.  “People were coming over here to buy it.”

Fifteen states have already banned spice. Starting Christmas Eve, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will institute a yearlong ban on five chemicals often found in synthetic marijuana.
