'Fake pot' ban closer to becoming law
An anti-drug proposal rooted in south Washington County could soon become Minnesota law.
The Minnesota Senate on Thursday passed a bill that would make synthetic marijuana illegal in Minnesota. Democratic Sen. Katie Sieben of Cottage Grove, who sponsored the proposal, said the bill containing the so-called ban on "fake pot" must be reconciled with a similar House measure but is headed toward Gov. Mark Dayton's desk.
