Fort Lee, Va. (WTKR) – For the first time at Fort Lee, two businesses are being black-listed, meaning soldiers aren’t allowed to go there.  If they do and they are caught, they can be punished under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, or UCMJ, where the penalty could be a discharge from the military. That’s according to a report from WTVR/CBS 6 in Richmond, Va. 

Why?

It comes down to synthetic marijuana - better known as spice – which has been outlawed in the Commonwealth and also in the Army, reports say.

According to Maj. David Martin, the Provost Marshal, a few Fort Lee soldiers have been busted with spice, and then told their commanders where they bought the illegal drug.
