A type of synthetic marijuana.
The stretch of Harry Hines Boulevard between Walnut Hill and LBJ in Dallas would seem to be a smoker's paradise, packing at least three full-service smoke shops into a mile-and-a-half stretch of road. Each offers a wide array of tobacco and tobacco-smoking accessories, from cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes to grinders, water pipes and blunt rolls to enhance the (nudge, nudge - wink, wink) nicotine-absorption experience. That's all on the up-and-up. How's a retailer supposed to know their wares might one day fall into the hands of marijuana smokers?

But the DEA says that least two of the stores -- EZ Way Smoke Shop and the Texas Smoke Outlet -- crossed over the line, pushing large quantities of synthetic marijuana. Dallas Observer has the local coverage.
