State Efforting New Illegal Drug Crackdown

Indiana (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – A new effort to crackdown on retailers selling illegal drugs is now underway in Indiana.

Drugs known as K-2 and spice are the targets of an aggressive crackdown.

Although they are already illegal to have on store shelves, authorities are finding retailers selling the substances under new names with different but similar chemicals hoping to avoid detection and penalties.

The State Attorney General's Office is warning stores caught selling the substances that they could lose their retail license for up to a year.

The Marion County prosecutor says his office will file criminal charges.

Marion County Prosecutor (D) Terry Curry says, “This stuff is junk. It's dangerous.”

Prosecutor Curry is giving retailers seven days to voluntarily turn over their illegal inventory.
