Bill would permanently ban ‘spice’

The House Judiciary Committee voted unanimously this afternoon to introduce legislation to permanently ban the chemical components that make up “spice,” a synthetic drug similar in effect to marijuana that previously was legal and sold in stores in Idaho. The Otter Administration earlier this year banned the chemicals through administrative rule, but that move would expire unless lawmakers act. “We need to eliminate 'spice' completely, and that's the objective,” said Rep. Rich Wills, R-Glenns Ferry, who proposed the bill today.
