Starting August 28, it will be illegal to not only sell synthetic marijuana, or K2, in Missouri, but it will also be illegal to possess it.
However, that is apparently not stopping people from stocking up on the goods. One shop in the area is reporting brisk sales with customers buying multiple packages and bulk purchases.
The owner says the customers are typically professionals and middle-aged adults. One adult says he likes it after a "tough day." He also just shrugged his shoulders when I asked what he'll do after August 28th. And then he grinned and turned away.
The shop owner says his store has made so much from sales that he is opening up another shop in a nearby city. But it seems as quickly as K2 burst onto the scene it will disappear in stores.
