BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — Four local businesses won't be able to sell alcohol now after they were busted for selling synthetic marijuana, according to Louisiana's Alcohol and Tobacco Control Board.
Baton Rouge Police agencies say they saw the drugs being sold Jasmin Food Mart on Sherwood Forest, along with three other places.
Also in trouble are Jayla Food Mart on Jefferson Highway, Friendly Food Mart on Florida Boulevard, and Keep Moving Food Mart in Baker.
The ATC says the stores all know synthetic marijuana is illegal, but they sold hundreds of packets anyway.
There will be a hearing for these businesses on Thursday.
