Colorado lawmakers are considering banning chemicals used in fake marijuana.

This comes a week after the Air Force Academy suspended 25 cadets, who are accused of using the synthetic pot. Senate Bill 134 would ban the synthetic chemicals, sold as Spice or K2. Federal officials already have issued a temporary ban on some of the 10 chemical compounds, while at least 20 states are moving ahead with their own ban.

Under Colorado’s version of the proposed law, synthetic cannabinoids would be illegal to possess or sell, and no exceptions would be made for those who are legally permitted to use medical marijuana.
