ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Allen County Commissioners and their legal advisers are currently weighing an ordinance that would prohibit the sale or possession of the troublesome drug "k2" throughout the county.

Fort Wayne City Council and New Haven City Council passed bans for the form of synthetic marijuana that until recently has been legal across the Hoosier state.

A county ordinance if passed would bring about consistent enforcement.

Allen County Commissioner Nelson Peters says, “In this particular case, ours would supersede the others. Now, having said that, I have talked to members of the city council, I've talked to the New Haven mayor and they are okay at this particular point with those prospects."

Peters says if there's support by at least one other commissioner, the new ordinance could be finalized and approved as early as next Friday.
