Synthetic marijuana & bath salts banned in PBC

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Palm Beach County commissioners have unanimously voted to ban the sale of synthetic marijuana and bath salts.

State law already bans the sale of the substances, but local leaders say that hasn't been enough to keep them out of stores.

Business owners, managers and agents that violate the ban now face a $500 fine and up to 60 days in jail.
