Navy Discharging 11 Va. Sailors For Spice Use

Posted: Updated:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Navy is discharging 11 members of a Norfolk-based ship's crew for using a synthetic drug known as Spice.
    
Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Bill Urban tells media outlets that two other sailors aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp face similar charges. They're accused of possessing another synthetic drug called 2C-1.
    
Urban didn't identify the sailors, who range in rank from seaman to petty officer 2nd class.
    
The investigation began in October after a crew member reported finding Spice in a work area of the ship.
    
The Wasp returned to Norfolk on Monday from a humanitarian mission providing support for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in New York and New Jersey.
