Soldiers face a new drug threat in the form of Salvia Divinorum and "Spice," two substances that have been on the rise as marijuana substitutes. Recent changes in federal law make it illegal to possess most forms of Spice. Similarly, all marijuana substitutes are illegal in the Army and may subject the Soldier to court-martial, nonjudicial punishment (Article 15) or separation. Soldiers should not be tempted to experiment with these substances or be fooled by the ease by which they can be obtained. For more information, read Army Directive 2012-14.
