Head Shop's Day in Court

After being charged by the Attorney General for false labeling and selling so-called designer drugs, owner Thomas Lynch of the Rolling Fire Glassworks in Endicott had his first day in court.

The state attorney general's office said the head shop was part of a state-wide crackdown on retailers selling mind-altering products that go by names such as "Bizzaro," "Potpurri", and "Cali Crunch."

Representative for the Attorney General, Mike Danaher, Jr., argued the products did not meet labeling requirements mandated by state law..

He also noted that the shop sold another illegal substance, nitrous oxide.

The defense did not deny selling nitrous oxide.

As for the other products, they disputed the AG's argument that what they were selling was actually synthetic.

"He [the Attorney General] has shown no proof, conducted no analysis to show that any of the products, contain any chemical, any compound whatsoever. In fact, all of these are natural herbs," said defense attorney Tim Dandar.

The judge reserved her judgment on the case for a later date.

Eight of the eleven other New York retailers sued by the state for false labeling have settled their cases.

I started out to find something that says Cool-Whip has nitrous oxide propellant, but this is more fun:
