AFA investigates 25 cadets for use of banned intoxicant

The Air Force Academy reports that it's investigating approximately 25 cadets for violating a General Order prohibiting the use of an intoxicating substance, commonly known as "Spice."

Spice is a synthetic substance, at least four times more potent than marijuana. It's sold as incense or potpourri, but users smoke it to get high.

The AFA has already kicked-out five cadets for using Spice.

"These recent separations and the use of Spice by a few of our cadets is not the behavior we expect of America's future Air Force and world leaders, and is not reflective of the highest standards we hold true to everyday," said Brig. Gen. Richard Clark, USAFA Commandant of Cadets. "Ultimately, we are protecting our primary mission: developing leaders of character."

The investigation is on-going.
