Street prices are Baloney.

Baloney is like $75 a slice on the streets, man.

What were these "synthetic drugs"? Article is not specific. I feel the need to know.

Order the reuben on rye, man.... you won't come down for a week...

Charges have yet to be filed from either raid.


So we're going with the "bankrupt the dealer" method of law enforcement?

Another source explains more: Link

Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed said synthetic marijuana and drugs known as bath salts worth $500,000 were seized from two Carlisle delis last week.

JOE HERMITT, The Patriot-News Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed and Carlisle police chief Steve Margeson talk about synthetic marijuana and drugs known as bath salts worth $500,000 were seized from two Carlisle delis last week. Carlisle police and the Cumberland County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant and recovered 20,000 doses of the two drugs -- 15,000 from N.S. Deli on West Willow Street and 5,000 from Deli Creations on West Louther Street. Each dose would sell for about $35 to $70. Most of the packages were of synthetic marijuana.

I usually interpret it in stories like these as the fake weed, used to be K2 but is now known by many names and they're always racing to outlaw them. I think typically those are just ground up household herbs that are sprayed with their synthetic liquid THC stuff. I've had very hit-or-miss experiences the few times I tried it, think I'd avoid it generally. I do wonder what would happen if you just drank a spoonful of the stuff... or maybe it needs to be in lungs?

Other option are crazy things like bath salts or other synthetic amphetamine-alikes.

I'll be interested to see how Carlisle's face-eating rate is affected by this seizure.

There's a police department in dire need of budget cuts. The police obviously have too much free time.

Probably either that ("K2" "Spice" or some comparable JWH-xxx CB1/CB2 agonist sold on inert plant mater) or "Bath Salts" (some kind of quasi-legal research chemical, sold as "bath salts," usually some kind of upper coke/meth/ecstasy alternative)

The problem with these research chemicals is we don't know the long term effects on the body. Heck, the pharmaceutical industry seems to recall a chemical every week or so for weird side effects, and these chmicals are supposedly vetted by the FDA and considered "safe."

I just smoke good ol' weed. Millions of people over thousands of years of in just about every culture can't be wrong. I'll let the kids get tumors from these odd chemicals. I'm sure they're made to exacting standards in whatever lab in Peru they originated.

The value estimates for drug busts always make me chuckle. Only dealers and users know prices, so let's just throw a bunch of zeros up there and see if we can scare people with that. I'd say the volume of cash 'lost' to piracy is about as valid.

fark our corrupt government.

Outlawing weed has opened up the floodgates for this shiat.

Just legalize weed.

also worth noting, "fake weed" is not synthetic THC. That would be Illegal across the board, as THC is a controlled substance, natural or synthetic. The "K2" and "Spice" products are synthetic chemicals that stimulate the Canabanoid receptors in your brain. The chemical structure of these molecules are nothing like THC, and we don't know exactly how they affect the body in the long-term. A popular one is JWH-018. There are many others. The high is very unpleasant in IMHO.

When did they stop arresting criminals? Is this the Tea Party's fault? Are the cops even considering looking for these dealers' source for the drugs?

I like to compare the system to a set of gatherers foraging for berries in the forest. A proper society would inculcate its youth with the knowledge of which berries to pick, and which to avoid and why. Instead, we just outlaw certain berries and expect people to stay away from them even though they grow in the wild, leaving them to break the law and discover for themselves why to avoid them.

/legalize, educate, ???, profit!

1. "Freed says he expects charges to be filed late this week or early next." Link in my last comment. Its complicated who owns these businesses and the police are investigating to make sure the responsible parties are charged.

2. No

3. Yes
 
2012-07-11 04:30:14 PM
So what happened to the quarter of a million dollars worth of drugs?
 
2012-07-11 05:03:31 PM
And, of course, the charges not only won't stick - because the items aren't scheduled and aren't applicable to the Analogous Drug act or any state statute which could be successfully defended in a Circuit Court [of Appeals] - but the business can claim a credit for lost inventory on their taxes as well as make an insurance claim for their products.

So only the taxpayers lose.
