St. Petersburg, Fla. (970WFLA) - The St. Petersburg City Council Thursday votes in an ordinance that bans the selling and possession of so called synthetic marijuana.
The potpourri like substance is commonly sold in convenience stores.
The ordinance allows police to enforce a ban on these stores selling the synthetic drugs, commonly known as "Spice" and "Bath Salts." The ordinance also bans possession and can carry an up to $500 dollar fine and jail time.
The synthetic drugs supposedly mimic the high you would get from smoking pot or taking anti-depressants.
