TRENTON— Synthetic marijuana is now banned in New Jersey.

Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill Monday that would ban fake marijuana which is sold under names like "K2," ''Spice," and "Space Cadet."

Lawmakers overwhelmingly supported the ban.

Christie's administration had already restricted access to the drugs last year by classifying them as controlled dangerous substances.

Under the new law, people who make, distribute or possess them could face up to 10 years in prison.
