Legislators Want Police Crackdown on Spice Sales

A delegate and senator are researching what can be done to slow the spread of "spice" in Anne Arundel County.

Two legislators in Anne Arundel County want to regulate the sale of synthetic marijuana, often called "spice," by cracking down on how the substance is categorized by police.

Delegate Cathy Vitale (R-Severna Park) called spice an epidemic, saying action needed to be taken now to prevent its spread. Her criticism is joined by Sen. Ed DeGrange, (D-Glen Burnie).

Vitale met with members of the Anne Arundel County Police Department to see what could be done locally for the problem, according to The Capital.

Vitale said she would like spice to be treated the same as psuedoephedrine, which the federal government regulates because of its use in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

It isn't the first time spice has taken center stage in Anne Arundel County. In December, The Capital published the results of their investigation into the proliferation of spice among midshipmen at the Naval Academy.
