PINELLAS PARK — Council members unanimously agreed Thursday to ban synthetic drugs and herbs that mimic the effects of marijuana and illegal narcotics.

The ban, which took effect immediately, covers a lengthy list of substances. Included in the ban are such things as spice, bath salts, K2, Mr. Happy and Bliss.

The rule applies to both individuals and businesses in Pinellas Park. Those founding using, possessing or selling any of the banned substances will be fined $500 plus court costs and attorneys fees for each violation. Each package counts as one violation.
