Rockland County head shop hit with fine after Schneiderman sting

7

A shop in Nanuet will pay a total of $15,000 after an investigation by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office found products such as nitrous oxide canisters had been mislabeled, according to a consent order.

Village Sensations, the head shop, sold Schneiderman’s investigators the nitrous oxide canisters (whip its) and synthetic drugs like Kratom products and Mollys Mosquito Caps, according to the AG’s office. State Supreme Court Judge William J. Giacomo signed an order Monday permanently prohibiting the store from selling any type of “synthetic drugs or intoxicants.”

“The proliferation of synthetic drugs has become a crisis in Rockland County, New York State and across the country,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “The judge’s order proves that, by taking a creative approach in using the state’s existing labeling laws, we can get swift results to remove dangerous synthetic drugs off store shelves and hold sellers accountable for breaking the law.”

Schneiderman in July had filed suit against 16 head shops across New York, alleging that they were selling synthetic drugs and bath salts that had been mislabeled as not for human consumption. The stores were soon hit with temporary restraining orders prohibiting the sales of such products, which in some cases (including the Nanuet shop) have now been made permanent.

Meanwhile, the state Health Department has announced its own bath salts crackdown last week, enacting tougher penalties for businesses that sell the synthetic drugs.

  4. Kratom is not synthetic, its totally naturally and fine. Please dont spread misinformation.

  5. Kratom is NOT “synthetic”. You so called “reporters” need to get this understood. Kratom is a LEAF. It comes from a TREE.

    Since when are LEAFS “synthetic”???

    Kratom is milder than coffee and has less side effects than Coffee too.

    Please get your facts right.
