Federal Agents Raid Kansas Shop That Sells Fake Marijuana, K2


Here's an interesting follow up to our stories yesterday (here, here) about the fake marijuana product, K2, that Missouri and Kansas are attempting to outlaw.

Yesterday in Lawrence, Kansas, local law enforcement and U.S. Food and Drug Administration agents raided the store Sacred Journey.

According to our sister paper Kansas City Pitch, the agents seemed to be targeting the store's supply of K2.  

The attorney for Sacred Journey, told the Pitch yesterday:
"From what I was told, the warrant says they are suspected of selling illegal drugs. The agents seized various things, including an inventory list, and going into the safe. The officers also told employees they were possibly taxing some of the things they were selling, and considering charging [the store's owner] criminally. 

"Supposedly some of the botanicals she sells contain chemicals that could be precursors to substances on the federal schedule (of controlled substances)."
Meanwhile, a Kansas City television station reports that the man who supplies Sacred Journey with K2 was also detained yesterday and questioned by law officials about the chemicals contained in the fake marijuana.
