A business owner in South Carolina is behind bars following an investigation regarding illegal drug sales at her smoke shops. At the end of 2014, state law was changed to prohibit the sale of synthetic marijuana -- also known as spice -- and products containing the compound AB-Pinaca. This particular shop owner is accused of continuing to stock synthetic marijuana in her stores and this other newly illegal substance.
With drug activity seemingly on the rise, police are out in full force when it comes to tracking down those affiliated with drug trafficking and distribution. After months of investigation of illegal drug activity in Florence County, a South Carolina man was arrested and now faces charges in drug court for his alleged affiliation with the distribution of cocaine. Charges against him could include drug possession, drug trafficking, possession with the intent to distribute and drug manufacturing, just to name a few.
