California Bans Spice 

The City Council unanimously approved a ban on a synthetic drug known as “spice,” which San Diego authorities say is responsible for a rash of hundreds of medical distress cases in recent months.

The law prohibits the manufacture, sale, distribution and possession of federal Schedule I drugs, “novel synthetic drugs” and “novel psychoactive drugs,” categories that include spice, according to the City Attorney’s Office.

The San Diego Police Department recommended the ban — which does not apply to medical marijuana — because of holes in state and federal regulations that are exploited by makers and sellers of so-called designer drugs. Only a handful of the 100 or so chemical formulas used to make the drug are prohibited.
