NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee attorney general has filed lawsuits against two Nashville men for making and selling a product called plant food but that is reportedly used as a recreational drug.
Attorney General Bob Cooper announced a statewide seizure of the product called Molly's Plant Food on Friday. Nashville police served seizure and restraining orders against Eric Ronnell Alexander and Joshua Covell at their homes and at a shop called Toke-N-Roll.
No criminal charges have been filed, but the state has cited civil law violations because the product has not been properly registered and labeled.
Cooper said in a news release that the product is referred to on he Internet as "legal ecstasy" and contains mephedrone, a substance known to produce effects similar to ecstasy and cocaine ten ingested.
