(WXYZ) - Andrea Schroeder and Tonya Cunningham are Clarkston moms who are trying to make a difference in their community.
They are part of the grassroots group called "nospicek2clarkston."
The group was started last month after K2 and other synthetic drug products began appearing in the headlines. They, along with other concerned residents, are visiting stores in their community and trying to get the business owners to pledge that they will not sell those products.
"We’re getting businesses to pledge and publishing list of those businesses so we can support those businesses," says Schroeder.
The names of the businesses supporting the pledge is on the group's website http://nospicek2clarkston.org
Richard Walker owns Joe's Cracker Barrel in Clarkston. He didn't sign the pledge the first time Schroeder stopped by, but today he did.
"When they came in and asked me to sign couple weeks ago I told them I'd look into it. After I looked into it I told her I wanted to sign the contract. I would never sell it," says Walker.
Schroeder estimates there are around 25 to 30 retailers most likely to sell K2. She believes they have gotten almost 100% of those stores to take the pledge not to sell the synthetic drug products.
