What's known as legal weed was found at North Vermilion High School today. An administrator turned over a couple of packets to the Vermilion / Municipal Narcotics Task Force. The task force will send the it off to a crime lab to be tested for illegal ingredients, Drew David with the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office said.
Legal weed is synthetic marijuana and contains chemicals sprayed onto a potpourri-like substance, which gets the user high. Not all synthetic weed is illegal. It depends whether the substance has been treated with specific chemicals that have been deemed illegal. It's sold at some convenience stores and head shops.
