Hollywood city commissioners are expected to ban synthetic marijuana on Tuesday night.
Fake marijuana and bath salts, which are also known as fake cocaine, have become more popular, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
Hollywood is just the latest city to try to ban the substances.
“There's evidence that the accessibility to these products, over the counter at convenience stores and gas stations and so forth, is something that needs to be stopped," Commissioner Dick Blattner was quoted by the newspaper as saying.
Hollywood’s ban would be put into effect by an emergency ordinance, which requires a one-time 2/3 vote of the commission.
People who violate the ban will face a $500 fine and the possibility of 60 days in jail.
Other cities in the process of banning the substances include Coral Springs, Davie, Fort Lauderdale and Lighthouse Point.
Broward and Miami-Dade counties, are also trying to ban both fake pot and fake cocaine.
Federal and state authorities have banned the sale of chemicals used to make the substances.
