Wondering how many cops have been following or are up to date on the newest drug trend, Spice, or K2. Spice is beginning to run amongst the ranks of our Military and Soldiers are becoming aware that there are not presently any tests that can detect it. Needless to say, I have been busy in recent months training about the drug and what Commanders are to be searching for, and now am getting requests for a presentation almost on a weekly basis. Any further info and or encounters with individuals whom have used Spice would be greatly appreciated.

The rapid drug test does not react to the intoxicating substances on Spice.


A toxicologist at the University Hospital Freiburg/Germany confirmed that several laboratories can detect now Spice consumption on blood samples.


This is the experience here in Europe.

Spice is indeed a major nightmare. The forensic labs at Fort Meade and Tripler are attempting to have the ability to test for Spice, but the major issue is every time that they develop the test, the chemists who create Spice alter the chem compound to make it untestable again. 13 states have gotten on board and banned it, as well as the military is taking an active approach to have it banned altogether as well.

I know here in Utah there are a couple of towns that have banned spice.. Utah is considering on banning the drug across the state..

That's what happed here in Arkansas.  K-2 showed up, the State Attorneys General jumped all over it and it was banned in not quite three months after it was advertised by the first head shop in Little Rock.  But of course, it being a mid term election year with his seat on the block, may have helped things along just a bit.  Either way.  That was an example of a good thing by the State's government.  Sad part about it, that doesn't happen everyday or near often enough.

Lot of municipalities are leading the charge in many other states as well, with the entire state following suit. Lot of attention needs to be put on it, such as a recent article on the front page of the Army Times.

As it was said earlier the chemical compound keeps changing so we have just been charging people with possessing a harmful intoxicant which is an M1 here in Ohio. The only trick is getting them to admit they smoke it to get high.

Spice is a hard one to detect. It affects different people differently. Here in NC it is now illegal to sell spice and bathsalts. While it was legal, the USMC banned all personnel from entering establishments that sold it. Locally, 3 US Marines were just charged with trafficking spice as they were stopped at a traffic stop and caught with +28 grams of the garbage. My experience with spice comes in the form of a married couple. One reacted very erratically after smoking it, pacing the room, etc. His wife was laid up on the bed with a towel over her head. Two people, same drug, very different reactions. They both ended up going to the hospital if for nothing else, to get them out of their home where their 2 children were witnesses to their behavior. I observed the package and asked if I could take it. The couple was rational enough to say "get it out of here". I took it back and made sure our shift knew what the packaging and the actual substance looked like. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the intel. Fortunately since I initially posted this thread, a lot has come to light and a lot has happened. Spice is now banned in the Army, a drug test has been created and implemented to detect it, and for most of the establishments that carried it before, they have received word that it is in the final works of being banned and enforced in Wisconsin, so many have voluntarily removed it from their stores. Noted mention of the bath salts, which right now I am aware of 9 different brands, but have not seen an influx of them here in my area thus far. Wisconsin's legislature is proposing a ban on both synthetic marijuana and the bath salts all in one bill, which is nice to see. Thanks again for the intel.

10-4 no problem. I must tell you, the night before these substances became illegal here in NC there were long lines in the local tobacco shops with people buying this garbage up. We have been dealing with the effects of this buying spree for the past 3 weeks but the calls involving this garbage are slowly trickling down. Now we are just waiting for the next designer drug to hit. It's amazing to me what addicts will pour into their bodies to obtain a high.

They made it illegal here in Louisiana; from what I hear, it's grass, etc. that they spray a bunch of chemicals(who knows what) on.

Basically right on the money. Most use potpouri and chop it up and spray the synthetic compound on it and dry it, package it, and sell it.

As of July 1st this was made illegal here in MN. It is a mis. to be in posession and gross mis. for distribution. This stuff has been a major pain in our community and we have been waiting a long time for it to get through legislation.
