F.C. School Board Wants K-2 Ban

In its package of requests to the upcoming Virginia Legislative Session, the Falls Church School Board gave final approval Tuesday to a set of measures led by its call for a legislative prohibition of the manufacture, distribution and possession of “synthetic marijuana,” also known as “K2” or “Spice.”

Noting that there are no current prohibitions in Virginia, and the product is being sold legally including in the City of Falls Church. The News-Press reported last fall that one outlet is located within two blocks of George Mason High School, although it is not sold to anyone under age 18. The F.C. Board also requests that the General Assembly change funding practices of the Virginia Retirement System (VRS), “including the practice of manipulating VRS rates to balance the budget that has resulted in a hug shortage in the teacher retirement fund over the next 20 years.”
