(KMOV) -- St. Charles County could become the first in the area to ban K-2.
Those who smoke the herb mixture say it produces a high similar to marijuana.
On Monday, members of the St. Charles County council will have a first reading of a bill that would make buying or selling K-2 a misdemeanor.
Anyone found guilty would face up to one year in jail or a $ 1,000 fine.
