In Wausau, two busts in two days at head shops selling synthetic marijuana. Wausau police bought the synthetic pot at “Blazin Gifts” on Wednesday and at the “Lil’ Devil Glass” head shop on Thursday.
The owner of the first shop and the manager of the second have both been jailed pending charges of possession with intent to deliver a non-narcotic drug.
Police have collectively seized hundreds of packages of the synthetic pot from the stores as well as large amounts of cash. They also found five grams of real marijuana when they searched the Birnamwood home of the owner of “Lil’ Devil Glass.”
Wausau banned the possession or sale of synthetic pot before a state ban on the products took effect earlier this year.
