    SOMERSWORTH — A search warrant executed at a local business by the Somersworth Police Department in conjunction with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration resulted in the seizure of over 2,100 units of synthetic marijuana along with records that indicate sales of over 15 pounds of the bath salt "Amped."

    According to a press release issued by Captain David Kretschmar of the Somersworth Police Department, the search warrant, which was executed on July 25 at the Somersworth Village Market on 35 Washington Street, is part of an investigation into the sale and distribution of synthetic cathinoids (bath salts) and synthetic cannibinoids (synthetic marijuana) in the area.

    As a result of Wednesday's search warrant, records indicating the sales of these items were seized by law enforcement officials. A preliminary examination of these records indicate that from mid January to May 1 the Village Market received and sold over 15 pounds of the bath salt "Amped."

    The 2,100 units of synthetic marijuana seized Wednesday are estimated to have a total value in excess of $34,000. These synthetic marijuana products will be analyzed by DEA chemists. No timeline has been given for when this stage of the process will be complete.

    Also as a part of this investigation, which began as early as February of 2011, investigators from the U.S. Postal Service intercepted two packages on May 4, 2012 destined for the Village Market. A search warrant later obtained by the Somersworth Police Department revealed the packages contained 2,100 units of "Amped."

    According to the press release, profits from the packages seized on May 4 would have been in excess of $65,000.

    Although no arrests have been made thus far, the investigation is continuing and arrests are expected.

    My name is Jason Jones. I'm from Rochester, MN and I'm 35 years old. I scrap metal and work as grounds keeper at a local trailer park. In the winter, I shovel a bunch of driveways and sidewalks to make some extra money and to stay busy. In my free time, I try to find interesting articles about the war on drugs that I can post on Drugs-Forum, so that the information can reach a wider audience.

    The world wide war on drugs is fueled by the United States giving money to all of the other participant countries. It will end when the American voters decide to vote for what is right and stop spending money to keep feeding this ridiculous, losing war. Ron Paul or Gary Johnson were the only two viable candidates to bring the U.S. back into power and out of the business of other countries affairs. It is the media that puts it in the sheeple's head's who the next President will be and they follow it every time. They tell us our votes won't count unless we vote for the worst of the whole bunch, but few pay no attention and vote for whomever they please and I am one of them. Ron Paul 2012!!!
