Attorney General Paxton and Harris County File Suit to Stop Sale of Dangerous Synthetic Drugs at Houston Convenience Store
“The recent rise of hospitalizations and deaths due to this dangerous drug is both alarming and tragic,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton “We must bring more awareness to this issue to ensure these products are kept out of the hands of our youth. All Texans need to understand the deadly consequences associated with this substance. Businesses that unlawfully sell and market this drug as a ‘safe alternative to marijuana’ are putting the health of our communities at risk just to make an extra buck, and it must be put to a stop. Fortunately, a new law that took effect this month expands the Attorney General’s Office authority to bring civil action against any retail business selling this drug, and my office will continue to work with local authorities to investigate and stop these offenders.”
