Spice: punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

In June, Air Force officials expanded regulations covering alcohol and drug abuse prevention and treatment. Lt. Col. Elizabeth L. Schuchs-Gopaul, a judge advocate with the Air Force Judge Advocate General Action Group, recently explained that the guidance specifically named the designer drug salvia divinorum, known as spice, inhalants, household chemicals, solvents and prescription drugs. Knowingly using or abusing these substances is punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Punishments can include dishonorable discharge, confinement for two years and the total forfeiture of all pay and allowances, the colonel said. Enlisted members could also face a reduction to the lowest enlisted grade.
