    Manchester, Conn. — State police say arrests are pending after they seized more than half a million dollars in synthetic marijuana from a Manchester storage facility Friday.

    Connecticut state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance did not list the address of the facility, but said the state police's Narcotics Task Force had been investigating drug activity in the area for a while. Troopers and detectives executed a search-and-seizure warrant at the warehouse at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

    Inside, Vance said, they found 30,500 bags of synthetic marijuana, with a street value of $610,000.

    No arrests were made Friday in connection with the massive drug seizure, but Vance said the investigation is ongoing and he expects arrests to follow.

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.

    Well this is 1 drug i don't mind getting seized.I hate seeing anyone going to jail for drugs but it's hard feeling sorry for anyone pushing this poison.Wouldn't it be great if the narcs put all their efforts, in getting drugs that are truly dangerous, off the streets and leave the soft harmless drugs alone.

    ^You,d certainly think the Cannabinoids are dangerous drugs after witnessing the reefer madness campaign the media have run against them.

    However I recently checked the hospital records in NZ and surprisingly the number of people coming in to A&E for the synthetics is basically the same (Slightly higher) as those coming in for real weed.

    So it seems the media are blowing up the 2% of users that have problems, generally teenagers with mental illness who have far exceeded sensible dosage.

    When compared to the number of people ending up in A&E for alcohol, the synthetic cannabinoids a but a small blimp on the graph.

    Most of the issues that do occur could easily be avoided if the government put some quality controls in place, such as capping the strength a blend can be.

    Of course the long term effects are still fairly unknown.
