TOPEKA, KANSAS (BNO NEWS) – On Wednesday, Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson signed into law the legislation HB 2411, a ban on K-2 and certain chemicals that are used to create synthetic drugs, the Governor’s Office informed.

“This legislation has received overwhelming support by Kansas law enforcement and the legislature,” said Governor Parkinson.

The Legislation amends the Kansas Uniform Controlled Substances Act to include K-2, other synthetic cannabinoids and chemicals that work together produce an experience that mirrors that of ecstasy.

“It will help improve our communities by bettering equipping law enforcement officers in addressing this issue and deterring Kansans from drug use.”

The bill would make it illegal to possess, use, or sell these drugs and goes into effect upon publication in the Kansas Register.
