Colo. lawmakers propose synthetic pot ban

A week after the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs suspended 25 cadets accused of using synthetic marijuana, Colorado lawmakers are moving to join dozens of states considering banning chemicals used in fake pot.

Senate Bill 134 would ban synthetic cannabinoids sometimes sold as Spice or K2. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration has issued a temporary ban of some of the 10 chemical compounds, but at least 20 states are moving ahead with their own state bans.

Colorado’s version would make synthetic cannabinoids illegal to possess or sell, and it would make no exception for people with legal clearance to use medical marijuana.

Colorado law allows people to buy real marijuana if they have a doctor’s recommendation.
