BALTIMORE - Federal authorities confirm Baltimore is one of 109 cities raided as part of a giant nationwide crackdown on synthetic drugs. A representative with the Drug Enforcement Administration in Baltimore wouldn't confirm which businesses were hit, but did say locations in the Baltimore area were involved.
The raids targeted businesses authorities believed to be selling synthetic drugs with street names like K2, Spice and Bath Salts. Experts say those drugs are often targeted to young people. The DEA says more than five million packets of synthetic drugs were taken off the street as part of the raids, which also led to the arrest of 90 people. More than $36 million in cash was also seized as part of this operation.
