A mid-Missouri county is taking steps to become the first county in the state – maybe even in the nation – to pass an ordinance stopping a legal mix of herbs. Pettis County Prosecutor Jeff Mittelhauser says he’s pushing for an ordinance to stop the possession or sale of a synthetic marijuana commonly sold as K2. Lawmakers in Missouri are considering banning the chemical substance. It’s banned in most of Europe. K2 is a mix of dried flowers, herbs and tobacco that’s combined with synthetic cannabis. It’s currently marketed as incense and sold at smoke shops and gas stations.
