The report is under investigation. 'Spice,' or K-2, became illegal to use in Illinois on Jan. 1 and many other states have banned the substance. According to a USA Today article, 'Spice' is sold online, in convenience stores and in herbal and spiritual stores and "is usually marketed as incense." The article described Spice as herbs coated with a synthetic chemical that "mimics a marijuana high when smoked."
