LEA COUNTY, N.M. - The Community Drug Coalition in Lea County came up with a plan to fight the synthetic drug craze.

Called K-2, spice and other names, they're sold as potpourri or incense and are smoked or eaten to get high.

The group plans to test chemicals in those items sold at head shops to make sure they don't have any banned chemicals.

If they find them, they'll push to ban their sale in city limits.

Along with targeting the stores selling the fake weed, they plan an intense campaign to educate the public.
