Bill to ban K-2 statewide filed for upcoming session

Bryan, TX – A State Representative has pre-filed a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would put a statewide ban on the controversial product K-2.

Although a number of Texas cities have already restricted the sale of the product, including several locally, people may still be traveling to areas where it isn't banned to get it. That's why Bryan Republican Representative Fred Brown says he filed the legislation.

K-2, when smoked, is said to give a marijuana-like high.

If passed, the law would make it equivalent to having the actual drug in the eyes of the law with the same kind of punishment.

The cities of Commerce, Sulphur Springs and Greenville are among several that have put some type of restriction on the product's sale.
