A new street drug 'K2', or so-called Spice, has been found for the first time in the city after police arrested a couple in a flat in a village house in Tung Tau Tsuen, Yuen Long, yesterday. 'K2' is a herbal and spice mixture, which when ingested has an effect similar to cannibas but is stronger. It is regarded as a new street drug in some countries and has been banned. Police believed the man bought the 30 grams, worth HK$20,000, in Asia. It was believed the man and the woman, both 29, had been supplying the drug to bar customers in the area.
