DENVER - A Longmont tobacco store is being sued for selling synthetic drugs commonly referred to as "Spice."
Attorney General John Suthers filed the civil suit Monday against Tobacco King, a Longmont tobacco store owned by Sang Leaming.
The suit claims Leaming and Tobacco King sold Spice products without warning consumers that the contents may contain illegal synthetic cannabinoids or other undisclosed, and potentially dangerous, chemicals.
Spice and other synthetic drugs have been linked to three deaths and more than 80 hospitalizations in the Denver Metro area since August 29.
More than 1,000 containers of Spice products from Tobacco King were seized.
