Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Minnesota's new designer drug ban, which includes the synthetic marijuana, is now in effect.

Moorhead had multiple stores that sold the "herbal spice." Police say new drugs often come out and since they have a chemical make-up never seen before, they're legal.

Police say they saw multiple cases of people "freaking out" after smoking the synthetic marijuana. Several store owners tried to hold up the law, saying it was too broad and not based on sound science.
