K2, Spice, Salvia and Other Synthetic Marijuana Products

In 2012, the following products were “scheduled,” both federally and at the State level, into a Controlled Substance Schedule I. This means that the retail sale or possession of these products is illegal.
Salvia (Salvia divinorum, salvinorin A);
  • Synthetic Marijuana (known as Spice, K-2 and similar products).
    Although these products may be labeled “Not for human ingestion,” they are commonly abused. They are typically packaged in small foil or plastic envelopes and are marketed under a variety of names. The labels commonly do not list specific active ingredients, as they are not labeled for consumption. These products may indicate that they are an incense or herbal product, and may be offered to retailers as a high-profit item.

    Sale of these products could result in felony charges and/or fines, and may have an impact on a retailer's ability to sell over-the-counter medications, or liquor, or participate as a lottery sales agent.  For more information, please contact the Connecticut Drug Control Division at (860) 713-6065 or at
