K2 is a synthetic herbal product that behaves similar to marijuana. A total of 921 grams of the illegal substance were seized from the store. “Numerous people have been hurt using the synthetic herbs,” said Sheriff Roger Deeds.“I’m very proud that my narcotics unit was able to make this case and stop this large seizure of poison from hitting the streets.”

Singh and Buckner have both received felony charges of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance. Singh’s bond has been set at $200,000 while Buckner’s bond is set at $20,000. Additional charges are pending as the investigation continues.

    Hmmm, I wonder why K2 became popular in the first place? I mean, all the news sources call it a, “marijuana substitute” so could it mean, and this is just stupid theory, that people are looking for a legal marijuana type high, so companies are finding legal research chemicals that are more dangerous than marijuana? Yea, that was a mouthful. Now, do you think if marijuana, a less dangerous drug than K2, was made legal, would people still want K2? Think about it. Why oh why are people so stupid?

    Quote>“Numerous people have been hurt using the synthetic herbs,”
    Millions of people have been killed by or because of alcohol but it’s legal. There is no record of anyone ever dying because of weed. I’ll never understand why it’s not legalized.

    so these 2 show up to work and sell the story’s product and they get arrested for it and the cops pat themself on the backs? Why isn’t the story’s owner arrested instead of these 2 employee’s who were only doing there job? Now we are holding employee’s accountable for the actions of store owners. This would be like Walmart selling K2 and the police arresting the cashier and never touching the CEO’s who are the one responsible for what their store sells. Then to top it off the cops think they did something great all while ignoring the fact that people buy, drink, and die from alcohol every day.

      I think Singh is the store owner and they aren’t posting it. Only because his bond is much higher than hers. Could be wrong, but who knows.

    Another case of big brother sticking his nose where it does not belong. If people want to ruin the life or lungs it is no business of the governments. They need to fix the budget and leave life to the people who are living it.

    All that stuff is legal. None of it contains K2.

    Great waste of police resources.
