PORT HURON, Mich. (WJBK) -

Port Huron is joining a growing list of Michigan communities working to ban the sale of so-called designer drugs.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Port Huron Police Department says it is "requesting area businesses voluntarily discontinue the sale of a legal form of synthetic marijuana known as K2, Spice or a variety of other names." Currently the sale of K2 is legal in Michigan but numerous efforts are underway to make the product illegal to sell or possess.

Port Huron Police Chief Michael Reaves has sent a letter to all area business owners requesting they, lead by example and voluntarily discontinue sales of K2. "I am very concerned as the Chief of Police with the negative impact this product has the capability of delivering to our community." said Chief Reaves in the letter.

On Monday several police agencies in Western Wayne County sent a similar letter to business owners asking them to voluntarily stop the sale and distribution of any designer drugs. In Macomb County, Executive Mark Hackel has also launched a similar effort in his community.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
