Hampton Shop Off-Limits To Military Personnel

A store in Hampton, Blazin Herbs, was placed on the off-limits list by the Joint Armed Forces Disciplinary Control Board for Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina on Wednesday.

The business was first placed off-limits on an emergency basis in July after hearing reports that it had sold synthetic marijuana, known as Spice. Synthetic marijuana was banned in the state in July.

Blazin Herbs joins seven other businesses in the Hampton Roads area that are off-limits to military personnel. The military prohibits its members from going into certain businesses when it believes they are dangerous to the health and personal well-being of military members.

The ban applies to active duty and reserves.

    While I totally get what the commands are doing keeping the young soldiers away from certain venues, I find irony also. You cant go to a certain shop, but we'll send you in to clear a building in cosevo or dissarm an IED.
