Over the past year, law enforcement officials have really been cracking down on spice and bath salts in the Ogden area. Police officers have been busting smoke shops, giving possession citations to individual users, and even citing people for DUI when they are under the influence of spice and driving. The state legislature over the past 2 years have passed significant laws regarding this new synthetic drug and are continually adding to the illegal substance list in Utah. Moreover, local Ogden city ordinances have made many of the spice and bath salt products illegal as well. Today, if you are purchasing spice, bath salts, potpourri, or any similar type of product from a smoke shop, chances are it is illegal. If you are a smoke shop owner and you are selling spice related products, you may be breaking the law without even knowing it.
