(US Naval) Academy expels 13th midshipman in synthetic marijuana investigation
Source: Baltimore Sun

The U.S. Naval Academy has expelled another midshipman in an ongoing investigation into the use or possession of synthetic marijuana.

Cmdr. Joe Carpenter said Wednesday that a male student was expelled last week. The expulsion brings to 13 the number of midshipmen who have been expelled as a result of the investigation, which began last fall.

Synthetic marijuana is sold in drug paraphernalia shops and on the Internet. The products contain organic leaves coated with chemicals that provide a marijuana-like high when smoked.

It is banned by the Defense Department and the Navy.

5. It's better known as Spice or K2
It's the "herbal incense" you can buy at the gas station that's supposed to get you high like pot when you smoke it.

6. The legal plant matter they sell in HighTimes, etc?
That stuff is more like smoking oregano... And I don't think it even gives you a high, less than what nicotine gives you. Are they not allowed to smoke nicotine? Let 'em go!
