Congressman Hansen Clarke released the following statement on synthetic marijuana, commonly referred to as K2 or Spice:

"Today I sent letters to U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, M.D., and Administrator Michele Leonhart of the Drug Enforcement Administration, requesting that synthetic marijuana be classified as an illegal substance and removed from retail store shelves. Over the past month, there has been an increase in crimes and fatal incidents linked to the use of synthetic marijuana by teenagers and young adults in Metro Detroit. I am working in Congress to ensure the health and safety of our children."
