A Chicago Police specialized narcotics unit seized nearly 40 pounds of "Scooby Snax" synthetic marijuana in packages emblazoned with the cartoon character Scooby-Doo's face.

The Chicago Police Department's Package Interdiction Team discovered thousands of foil packets of the synthetic marijuana inside a suspicious package bound for the Chicago area. A commercial package carrier identified the package, and a Chicago PD spokesman declined to provide the location of the seizure.

The individual packages were emblazoned with an image of the cartoon character Scooby-Doo and were labeled "Scooby Snax 4G" in an effort to "market this dangerous product to a younger demographic," according to a release.

The package contained approximately 16,783 grams (or about 37 pounds) of synthetic marijuana, which carries an estimated street value of more than $265,000. No arrests have been made and the case remains under investigation.

dont believe everything you read coming from the media, they prob high as fuck on this stuff while coming up with some of this nonsense. $265k street value, ya more like $80k. "... labeled "Scooby Snax 4G" in an effort to market this dangerous product to a younger demographic" more like scooby snax gives you the munchies ,shaggy and scooby were stoners, has nothing to do with marketing to little kids that like scooby do lol, one of the dumbest comments I've heard so far.

It's actually "incense." The label clearly says, "Not for human consumption" They sale the stuff at gas stations and liquor stores. It's not "synthetic marijuana." But out does give the same effect. Most purple on probation and parole smoke it cause it's undetectable in the test and it's LEGAL. Law enforcement is mad cause they can't lock people up for it. It has the same dangers as a pack of cigarettes.

Thats stupid its compleatly legal!

marketing ADA drugs, and High Fructose Corn Syrup to kids is legal. Removing poultry inspectors and not labeling GMO food to kids is legal?
since when "not for human consumption" means illegal, and since when scooby doo incense is "synthetic marijuana".
