The Baltimore County Council voted unanimously Monday to ban a potpourri-like product that mimics marijuana highs.

Anyone attempting to sell, distribute, possess, buy or use K2, also known as spice, and other products that mimic marijuana will face a $500 fine, 60 days in jail or both.

More than a dozen states have enacted similar bans or have pending legislation.

“I think the message is that we’re not going to tolerate these activities taking place in Baltimore County neighborhoods,” said Councilman Kevin Kamenetz, who introduced the legislation. “Parents have a difficult enough time as it is with raising their children with all the various distractions to have these substances also being sold to both adults and children in community neighborhoods.”
