Synthetic marijuana use continues to increase in Maryland and throughout the United States. Synthetic marijuana has become so popular that the National Institute on Drug Abuse said it is the second-most common illegal drug used by high school seniors.
Three individuals are facing drug charges after police were called to a hotel on Oct. 30. When police arrived, they allegedly noticed the odor of marijuana in a hallway while standing directly outside one of the rooms. An officer placed himself next to the door when two people walked out of the room unexpectedly. Police say that a third individual in the room quickly went into the bathroom and allegedly began flushing evidence down the toilet.
