Synthetic Marijuana (SPICE, K2, POTPOURRI)
“Synthetic marijuana” is a phrase that refers to designer drugs made by applying chemicals that mirror (with great distortion and often catastrophic effect) the effects of cannabis. K2, Spice, LOL, Potpourri, and other varieties of synthetic cannabinoids were previously sold in smoke shops that operated in the grey-area of the law.
Possession of a controlled substance prohibited under the ” Texas synthetic marijuana statute” can range from a Class B misdemeanor, to life a life sentence.
Additionally, Texas has passed a catch-all provision, which would cover any newly created synthetic drug that has yet to be classified as illegal, but mirrors the effects or structure of an already illegal substance. Manufacture/delivery of such “miscellaneous substances” is a Class A misdemeanor offense. Possession of such “unlisted” substances is punishable as a Class B misdemeanor offense.
