LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan House has overwhelmingly approved a ban on use and possession of some street drugs that some lawmakers say are becoming more common in the state.
The Democratic-led chamber passed bipartisan bills Wednesday aimed at cracking down on a marijuana-like substance often called K2.
Another drug covered in the legislation is known as BZP, a stimulant sometimes marketed as Ecstasy and sold in cartoon shapes so they look like children's vitamins or candy.
The bills now go to the Republican-led Senate.
BZP already is banned by the federal government. Several states are considering or passing laws aimed at BZP and K2.
