Examining new NYC bill that willl ban sales of K2


Mayor de Blasio is taking a major step towards keeping synthetic marijuana off the streets.

On Tuesday, he signed a bill that bans the sale of the dangerous drug also known as “K2” or “Spice.”

Over the summer alone, 2,000 people were admitted to the ER after using the drug, bringing the total close to 45,000 hospital cases for the year.

Will this new bill finally get K2 off the streets, or will it just cause a higher demand?

Councilwoman of the 16th District, Vanessa Gibson and CEO of Chemical Dependency Services Warren Zysman join us in the studio.
