On August 30, 2012, Maryland officially declared synthetic cannabinoids – commonly called “Spice” “K2” or “bath salts” – illegal for sale or possession in Maryland.
Synthetic cannabinoids imitate the effects of marijuana, are have been sold in smoke shops, convenience stores and on the web for years. With the price of real weed skyrocketing, many young people are turning to synthetic pot as a replacement. Other popular brand names for synthetic marijuana include: Blaze, Blueberry Haze, Dank, Demon Passion Smoke, Genie, Hawaiian Hybrid, Magma, Ninja, Nitro, Ono Budz, Panama Red Ball, Puff, Sativah Herbal Smoke, Skunk, Ultra Chronic and Voodoo.
New maximum penalties for synthetic marijuana range from 20 years in prison or $25,000 in fines for distribution or possession with the intent to distribute (PWID). Those convicted of simple possession of Spice or K2 face up to four years in jail or $25,000 in fines.
