No More Legal Sales of Synthetic Drugs in Caddo Parish

Caddo Parish is cracking down on synthetic marijuana use by making it illegal for convenience stores to display synthetic drugs for sale.

The Caddo Commission approved the new law last night. It applies to novelty potpourri and hallucenogens as well. Commission President Michael Thibodeaux says places where the abused potpourri is sold should take it off the shelves immediately.

Lt. Carl Townley with Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics says this new law will definitely help them in the fight against drugs. Under the ordinance, if a convenience store owner is caught selling potpourri laced with illegal chemicals, they could face a $500 fine or six months in jail.

According to Thibodeaux, as of now, convenience stores will only have a problem if the THC like chemicals used to make the potpourri have been illegal. Some store owners say they want to test it first, and police have given them no avenue to get the alleged drugs tested.
