ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Albany Dougherty Drug agents make their biggest bust of synthetic marijuana, or spice.

Agents raided an apartment on Nottingham Way Friday night and found a quarter pound of synthetic marijuana.  They also found a quarter pound of regular marijuana, an ounce of crack cocaine, and almost 2 and a half grams of ecstasy.

35-year old Aundrek Bussey and 38-year old Walter Irvin are charged with possession with intent to distribute.

Drug agents say this bust proves that spice is becoming more plentiful on Albany's streets.

A.D.D.U. Commander Major Bill Berry said "We've seen small amounts, maybe a small nickel bag or five dollar bag or small amounts comparable to what we see here. But this is the largest we've been able to see so far, so that has great concern for us. Because there is obviously a trend coming, or it's already here."

Experts say synthetic marijuana is sprayed with narcotic substances that mimic T-H-C, the natural chemical in marijuana that causes a high.
