Is this the way to stop rampant K2 use?
From CBS 2:
Neighborhoods demanding a crackdown on the dangerous synthetic drug K2 rallied today describing the way the narcotic poisons their communities.
The neighborhoods might be different but the effects are the same, reports CBS2’s Marc Liverman.
CBS2 exclusive video taken back in 2016 show people on K2 passed out on chairs in the middle of the sidewalk, seen again in 2018 all around New York City.
Others are seen leaning against buildings and nodding out as mothers pushed their strollers close by. That was in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx, and now it’s happening in Williamsbridge.
Just ask pastor Janet Hodge.
“Every morning that we arrive, we find that people have used the bathroom on our property,” she said. “Every day I come outside and I find that there are men and women loitering on our stoops and they are in a stupor.”
“We have people walking around zombie-like, in catatonic states, up and down White Plains Road,” said State Senator Jamaal Bailey.
At a rally Monday, local politicians and residents said enough is enough. King introducing new legislation that would hold landlords and area businesses accountable.
“The store will be shut down and you will not be able to reopen the same business or rent it out to the same business,” he said.
The new legislation would also slap on a $100,000 fine on any business caught selling the synthetic cannabinoid.

Let Darwin take its toll. When they crash out, don't call an ambulance. Don't give them help/aid. The problem will go away
Diblasio will open K2 sites where the people can use it under supervision...
They prefer the real thing.
It may be extreme but all the measures that the city has tried has only worked short term. Shame goes along way. I hope these bodega owners stop focusing on making dirty $$$ and start focusing on helping their communities become drug free by not selling these products.
I just don't get it. Humans fight so hard to put all this junk in their veins, up their noses and in their lungs and we're all supposed to worry about them and spend millions of dollars trying to convince them that it's dangerous and deadly stuff. Tax the marijuana pushers, who America loves, to pay for rounding all these folks up and "curing" them.. Leave all this crap alone. Soon or later your doctor will have you on drugs that the government will pay for anyway!
Heavy use in Brooklyn )Crown Heights&Bed Stuy) and some Queens (excuse the politically "incorrect" term)"ghetto" nabes.
No one is forcing these people to use this synthetic, chemical crap.
The war on drugs is over, and the victor is drugs.
Well here it is.
Liberalism in a nutshell.
It is the fault of these bodegas and other businesses. These zombies were productive members of society before they bought whatever they were taking. It isn't their fault.
This will drive it increasingly underground, and lead to addicts taking even stronger, more dangerous drugs.
Just look at what happened when the government cracked down on Oxys and Vicodin - the addicts just moved onto heroin, and the problem get exponentially worse.
Them guys look like they smoking heroin?
If they smoking k2, the should be smoking marijuana instead.
Many illegal drugs come in from Mexico, South America and Southeast Asia. Did the rally promote tighter border security also?
There's a risk for the cops that this might turn out like the crack epidemic: Community asks for greater crackdowns. Law enforcement listens. Law enforcement is called racist for listening.
>If they smoking k2, the should be smoking marijuana instead.
Good point. This is the result of driving marijuana underground, people are turning to the more dangerous K2.
