Michigan House OKs bills targeting K2, BZP drugs

    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.
