Iowa takes a stand against synthetic drugs


The state of Iowa and Senator Chuck Grassley are taking a stand against synthetic drugs.

Thursday, state officials issued a safety alert about drugs that mimic pot, cocaine and other illegal drugs.

Officials say parents need to talk to their kids about the dangers of things labeled "incense" or "potpourri" saying they are just as dangerous as outlawed K-2.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley is authoring legislation on Capital Hill to ban chemicals used to make "K-2" or Spice.

The bill is named after an Iowa man who took his own life after using the drug.
