Tennessee Is Cracking Down on Synthetic Cannabis

When synthetic cannabis first went on sale in the early 2000s, it was often marketed as herbal incense or "smoking blends" and sold under various brand names in head shops, gas stations and online. It was years later, in 2008, when a laboratory analysis revealed the drugs to actually contain a complex variety of synthetic Cannabinoids. In 2012, Tennessee legislators amended a law making it illegal to possess, produce or distribute any "imitation controlled substances," including synthetic cannabis like Spice, JH/Kush and K2. Those arrested for crimes related to the drug may face a misdemeanor or even a felony charge.

Penalties

According to HB 2286, it is a Class E felony for an individual "to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell, or possess with the intent to sell, deliver or manufacture an imitation controlled substance." A conviction may result in a fine of up to $3,000 in addition to a period of incarceration. Possessing and/or using synthetic cannabis is considered a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 11 months and 29 days in jail in addition to a fine between $250 and $2,500.
