TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson city leaders passed an ordinance on Tuesday, May 23, to increase the penalties for people who violate the spice prohibition.

All of the Tucson city council members votes yes for the ordinance, a move that was met with applause from those in attendance. 

Arizona has passed two laws in the past five years prohibiting the use, sale, and manufacture of the synthetic cannabinoids.

But each time, drug makers change the formula, skirting the laws and that is why it has been so difficult to keep up.

Tucson will supplement the state law and add EG-018, the newest cannabinoid on the market.

The new spice ordinance can be found HERE.
