Three South Salt Lake shop owners were charged with multiple counts of drug distribution offenses for allegedly using their business to sell a synthetic marijunana known as "spice" to minors.
The Utah Attorney General's Office charged the owners of ST Market, 2791 S. State St., on Friday. Prosecutors alleged that between July 1 and Sept. 4, the store sold spice, considered a controlled substance in the state of Utah, out of the store, which is near Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. Spice is known as a cannabinoid, which can produce an effect similar to marijuana when ingested.
Investigators spoke to one minor who said he was sold a spice strain known as "Dank" on July 15. An undercover agent also was sold another version of the substance known as "Sky Horse."
