SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The South Bend Common Council and the South Bend Police Department are collaborating with their “Not in our Community” initiative to get synthetic marijuana off the streets.

Officials are encouraging convenience store owners across the city to voluntarily take certain pot-like products off their shelves, citing that synthetic cannabis can be almost 100 times more potent than regular marijuana.

Products like Delta 8, 9, and 10, Spice, and K-2 are what store owners are being advised to remove from shelves.

According to the South Bend Department of Health, there were 97 overdose deaths last year due to synthetic marijuana and there have been 50 so far this year.
