McCracken County bans synthetic marijuana

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - County leaders voted to ban synthetic marijuana in McCracken County Monday night.

McCracken County Sheriff John Hayden says county leaders and local law enforcement met at a regularly scheduled fiscal court meeting Monday and decided to ban synthetic marijuana in the county.

Hayden says they will send out letters Tuesday to local businesses who sell the product notifying them about the new law.

He says law enforcement will give the local businesses a couple of days to get it off the shelves before they start enforcing new law.

He believes about a dozen or so local businesses currently sell the synthetic marijuana.
