HOUSTON—Pasadena police shut down two businesses accused of selling synthetic drugs.
A recently enacted Pasadena city ordinance prohibits illegal smoking products, commonly referred to as “Kush.” The Pasadena Police Department has been conducting investigations into locations that continue to sell the prohibited items.
Investigators said they found the prohibited items at A 2 Z store on Pasadena Boulevard and the AK store next door.
Narcotics Task Force officers seized over 5,800 packets of different variations of “Kush” and “Bath Salts,” along with an unspecified amount of cash, police said.
Investigators said the retail value of the seized items is approximately $120,000.
Two individuals were arrested on unrelated warrants.
Charges related to the “Kush” are pending.
