Snythetic Marjuana Wearehouse Being Investigated

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Hillsborough Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a warehouse that they say is a hub for synthetic marijuana distribution in Tampa.

On Wednesday, Hillsborough officials say they found about 500 to 600 pounds of K2, a drug commonly known as synthetic marijuana.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating possible safety hazards, along with Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency and the state Fire Marshal’s Office.

Authorities say the substance was being soaked in chemicals at the warehouse.

Marketed as “herbal incense” not intended for human consumption, K2 is made of plant material soaked in chemicals.
