Businesses Losing Their Liquor Licenses For Selling Synthetic Marijuana
Some businesses are having to learn the hard way. Alcohol and Tobacco Control Commissioner Troy Hebert, along with other law enforcement agencies, are finding stores that continue to sell synthetic marijuana and suspending their liquor licenses.
Hebert says they've already served suspensions at four businesses, and there are more to come. He says they are implementing a zero tolerance policy.
Hebert says even though a business owner can be fined or get jail time for selling illegal synthetic marijuana, he believes a liquor and tobacco license suspension would send a stronger message.
