Marine Corps, Navy ban personnel from six Beaufort County businesses (updated)

One of the controversial products.

Updates at the bottom.

After six unnamed Beaufort County businesses refused to stop selling controversial but legal psychotropic drugs, local Marine Corps and Navy commanders have forbidden personnel to visit the stores. 

In question are Spice and K2, both of which are synthetic marijuana and legal but coming under increasing pressure and regulation. 

I'll point you to Bluffton Today for more on the release.

Update, evening: The Island Packet has published their report that is much the same but at the end briefly discusses pending South Carolina legislation to make the substance illegal; read the report here.
