A Longmont tobacco store is being accused of selling illegal synthetic marijuana.
Tobacco King owner Sang Leaming faces criminal charges in Boulder County. State attorney general John Suthers announced Monday that his Consumer Protection Section has filed a civil lawsuit.
Suthers says the Longmont store sold products last summer without warning consumers that the contents may contain illegal synthetic cannabinoids or other undisclosed chemicals. The attorney's general office wants to see Tobacco King pay fines.
The store has not been linked to recent fatalities associated with the use of synthetic pot, also called "spice."
Under Colorado law, all synthetic cannabinoids are illegal.
