Guam - With legislation that would completely ban Spice on Guam awaiting the governor's signature, the military is doing its part to ensure its troops aren't using and abusing the synthetic substance.  36th Wing Judge Advocate Office Captain Bryant Bair says the Air Force is able to detect the substance that has been deemed extremely harmful. 

He admits there have been instances of airmen using Spice and the Air Force has zero tolerance. "The Air Force and the military is active in testing for variety of drugs," he said. "Spice is really relatively new for us and has just come in for the past few months so as drugs become a problem we become aware of them and the air force and military finds ways to test for those."
