Chesterfield Township joined many , also known as Spice, at the Monday night Board of Trustees meeting.
The board expressed verbal support for an end of K2 sales in the community. Police Chief Bruce Smith said police had gone around the community earlier, asking retailers to voluntarily stop selling the synthetic marijuana.
"As of 2:30 p.m. today, no businesses in the township are selling K2 any longer, as far as we are aware," Smith told the board Monday night.
Supervisor Michael Lovelock suggested police conduct regular checks on the businesses to ensure K2 remains off the shelves.
State Rep. Andrea LaFontaine also was present at the meeting to discuss this growing issue.
"We have to eradicate the availability of these substances before they destroy more lives," LaFontaine, whose district includes Chesterfield and New Baltimore, said in a prepared statement before the meeting. "I will be working diligently with other lawmakers in Lansing as well as local law enforcement to see this issue resolved as quickly as possible."
