Starke County Commissioner Dan Bridegroom inspects synthetic marijuana product

A Lake Station store owner is suing the City over an ordinance banning the selling of synthetic marijuana products. The store owner says under the new ordinance, over the half the items in his store could be considered synthetic marijuana.

The U.S. Government is considering a ban on products that mix herbs and synthetic chemicals that mimic marijuana. Government officials say it appears the products are dangerous.

The Knox City Council and the Starke County Commissioners are in the process of banning these products.
