Health department conducting public hearing about criminalizing Spice

Cache County, Logan City and Providence have already voted to ban Spice and Tuesday the Bear River Board of Health will consider criminalizing the substance across the whole health district, which includes Cache, Rich and Box Elder counties. A public hearing on the issue will be held Tuesday at 4 p.m. at the Bear River Health Department, 655 East 1300 North in Logan. Health Department Director Lloyd Berentzen says Cache County’s ban on Spice includes only the unincorporated part of the county and the other ordinances can be enforced only in Logan and Providence, respectively. Berentzen says if the Board of Health approves the ban, law enforcement officials could prosecute cases throughout the tri-county area.
