Stores still selling K2 in Christian County, Sheriff says

Posted:

TAYLORVILLE --  It's illegal for store shelves, but kids are still finding ways to get high on K2 in Christian County.

K2 is a synthetic marijuana. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says some stores are still selling it illegally.

He's received several complaints about it recently, but says there's a challenge with these kinds of drug dealers in a small town.

"They will sell to people that they know, that they've been selling to for a long, long time," Kettelkamp said.  "That's the only people that they will sell to."

Kettelkamp said they're investigating several incidents throughout the county.

Businesses that have been warned -- and still get caught selling K2 -- will get slapped with a Class Two felony.  That's punishable by up to seven years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
