COLUMBIA CITY â€” Despite July 2011â€™s ban on synthetic marijuana, commonly known as â€śspiceâ€ť, is still prevalent in Whitley County and much of Indiana.
Though the marijuana-like drug canâ€™t be found on shelves at local businesses, Whitley County Drug Task Force Leader and Sheriffâ€™s Detective Bill Brice said people are going to Fort Wayne or buying the substance on the internet.
â€śThe ordinance has helped keep the illegal stuff off the shelves, but itâ€™s still out there,â€ť Brice said.
Employees at Coupled Products, a business on CR 600 E near U.S. 30, have been on strike for nearly seven months. Above, Gerri and Bill Wickliffe protest behind the groupâ€™s sign, â€śRight 2 work for less.â€ť
