Attorney General Files "Spice" Lawsuit

Colorado's Attorney General announced his office has filed a civil lawsuit against a Longmont tobacco store for selling products called "Spice" that they say contain illegal synthetic cannabinoids.

In a statement, Attorney General John Suthers' office alleges the Tobacco King in Longmont sold the spice products without warning customers that the contents could contain potentially dangerous chemicals.

Agents from the Colorado Department of Revenue, Liquor, and Tobacco Enforcement Division seized more than 1,000 containers of spice from the Longmont store.

The Attorney General's complaint says Tobacco King sold products labeled "not for human consumption."
