They got BUSTED for selling K2, come on like it took that much to figure it out. It was on he Channel 3 news, if you would watch the important news and not go of of this site as your news center you might know this, says the cops retrieved many boxes from the store, now use your common sense to figure it out morons!

Lol ok grammar nazi! So sorry using my smartphone voice command guess it didn't pick out the correct variant. I will proofread better next time. Although I think most out here would understand my error as well as your correction. Indeed you are correct though.

They were selling K2 and fyi it's illegal. They need to put these Buttwipes in prison were they belong. This crap is killing our kids. Not to mention his family members were saying he was selling bath salts awhile back.

Don't dobut it. The few times I have gone there for cigarettes had to wait in a long line of people getting k2 every time. All seemed like daily buyers since they all seemed to have friendly relationships with the staff. If ya can't make your business work the legitimate way don't resort to selling illegal substances to make it work. This shit is killing the community. That's if this is in fact true.

I agree with you. Personally I think alcohol should be outlawed and marijuana legalized. Alcohol causes more problems than marijuana. And no I do not smoke it nor do I drink.

Let's start by saying darkness is not K2. K2 is illegal but darkness is within regulation of the law unless they have changed the law within the last couple of weeks.

All of it should be Illegal. It has chemicals in it that alters the mind. Not to mention what it does to the rest of your body. I don't care what it is called today or changed to tomorrow. It's all harmful and yes it's making it terrible to even live around here with all the drugs and crime. People rob everybody to get this stuff. It's not cheap and it's killing people no matter what they wanna call it.

Okay so the Benton and West City Police blocked off the entrance to the Smoke Break on Thursday afternoon, and everyone thinks they got raided for selling illicit products.
The sign posted on the door by the owner states that the "Nazis" came and took their cash registers. They were taken as required by either a Federal or State revenue audit. If this was a "raid" then the local media would have covered it like all the other raids recently, and please note that they do not sell any illicit products.
So what I think this appears to be is sales tax revenue audit and certain people getting a cut. Think about it, there appears to be a new One-Stop Smoke Shop under construction in West City, and there is a lot of money in the tabacco retail business, and Benton/West City may not be big enough for two outlets and Benton and West City will go with who lines their pockets the best.
