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.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
