Owner Of Tebb’s Sued By State AG
Watertown, NY (WIBX) - The owner of Tebb's head shops is being sued by the state Attorney General.
Eric Schneiderman filed the suit against John Tebbetts, III of Rome in State Supreme Court in Jefferson County.
Schneiderman says Tebb's re-formatted and re-marketed synthetic drugs by re-labeling "bath salts" to become "glass cleaner."
He says Tebb's even held a storewide naming competition for a new synthetic marijuana product created to avoid the statewide ban.
The local Tebb's stores were raided last week by the DEA as part of a nationwide crackdown on the sale of synthetic drugs.
