Millville may become next city to ban spice

MILLVILLE–The City Council is considering implementing an ordinance to ban the synthetic cannabinoid commonly referred to as spice.Sgt. Mikelshan Bartschi used a PowerPoint presentation at the council meeting Thursday to illustrate the dangers of spice and how common it is becoming. The law to ban drugs was good at the time, but there are so many new drugs that it is becoming difficult to manage, Bartschi said.Spice is the generalized name, said Bartschi, but the substance is also referred to as spice diamond, black mamba and many other names.Law enforcement is doing what they can about the issue because parents are saying their kids have been hospitalized because of spice and 12-years-old are using it.”Spice is easy to purchase right now, but that’s slowing down quite a bit,” Bartschi said.
