NEW YORK (AP) - Police have seized approximately 2 million packets of synthetic marijuana with a combined street value of $10 million from a Bronx garage.

Authorities made the discovery around 5 p.m. Wednesday in a two-bay garage.

Police say the drugs, commonly referred to as K2 or spice, were found pre-packaged for sale in laundry bags.

WCBS-TV reports the raid was a continuation of a bust last week that led to the indictment of 10 manufacturers and distributors from across New York’s five boroughs.

The use or sale of K2 isn’t a crime in New York City, and manufacturing the drug is classified as a health-code violation.

The defendants busted last week were charged with breaking federal laws by importing illegal synthetic compounds and mixing them into the artificial marijuana.
