The debate on this ban of K2 in St Charles County happened very fast. Originally the bill to ban was supposed to be introduced and then according to procedure would be voted on at the next meeting on March 29th. After that it would take 30 days to become law.
After hearing about K2 from a medical expert and a family affected by K2, council members just couldn't wait for the ban to become law and decided to institute a health priority and passed it immediately.
Council members acknowledge that much is not known about K2 including what is in it. One member says he only heard about it 5 days ago, and another member was researching K2 on CNN's website only moments before the vote.
One member did express reservations about voting on something so quickly but the ban passed without any objections.
