Posted: Updated:

Guam - Lawmakers back in session today discussing a number of measures, including Bill 386, which would make salvia divinorum or Spice a Scheduled I Controlled Substance. The measure was prompted by several incidences where students were caught with the synthetic cannabinoid in local public high schools. A student even lost all mobility and had to be taken to the hospital.

Senators shared support for the measure, and moved it into the voting file. Senators also moved four other bills into the voting file including Bill 340, 343, 350, and 363 that would authorize the use of local funds to match grants for the veterans affairs to expand the Veterans Cemetery.

Session continues Thursday morning at 9am at the Legislature.
