Synthetic Cannabinoids Ban Sought

{Hazard, Kentucky}...Perry County officials are supporting an ordinance to ban synthetic cannabinoids. The fiscal court has taken the first step in the process to get rid of the substances, and Judge Executive Denny Ray Noble is supporting the ordinance. The next reading of the ordinance will be on February 21st. If it passes, it would go into effect immediately, and the minimum punishment would be up to 90 days in jail and up to a $250 fine. Possession of any of the forms would be a Class B misdemeanor. Anyone caught to be trafficking in the drug could face up to a year in prison with a $500 fine.
