Michigan Food and Beverage Association applauds state OK of K2 ban
WARREN, Mich., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Michigan Food and Beverage Association (MFBA), today applauded the work of the Michigan House and Senate for their swift passage of legislation banning the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana products, known more commonly as K2 and Spice.
The Association, whose members include convenience store, gas station, and party store operators, also voiced its support of the collaborative effort announced today by Detroit Police and the local business community to halt the sale of K2 and Spice products in the tri-county area.
"This marks an important step in the effort to stop sales of this deadly and dangerous family of products," said MFBA President and CEO Jennifer Kluge. "We eagerly await Governor Rick Snyder's signing of the legislation." Earlier this month, the MFBA publicly advocated a "no sale" policy for synthetic marijuana products, while supporting state legislative efforts to strengthen laws banning the products.
