K2, also known as Spice, Genie and Zohai, is an herb coated with a synthetic chemical, often JWH-018, that when burned gives off a relaxing aroma. The product mimics marijuana — it looks like marijuana — but comes in varied fruit scents like pineapple and strawberry. Six states have banned JWH-018, Kansas was the first, followed by Kentucky and North Dakota. On Thursday, the chemical was outlawed in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. Several other states, including Michigan, are considering bans.
