MOBILE, AL - 200 pounds of synthetic marijuana, known as spice, was seized by police in Mobile on Monday.

Police issued a warning to parents about the drug's affects.

"We see this as probably the single most significant threat to the health and safety of our community that we've seen since the crack epidemic of the 1980s," said Mobile Police Chief James Barber.

"What you see here on these tables, what you see in those individual packets, how they are packaged, how they are marketed is for young people in our community," said Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich. "This needs to be a conversation with every parent who has an elementary, a middle school and a teenager in their home."

Officials say the street value of the bust is more than $600,000.
