Photo detail

Law enforcement agencies in Callaway County and throughout the state say that the designer drug synthetic cannabinoids, such as these brand-name packages siezed from G.I. Joe Gun and Pawn in Fulton during a search in December, are becoming a more widespread problem. Police say the chemists involved in manufacturing these drugs often tweak chemicals to avoid positive test results, and many vendors are selling them under the assumption that they are legal.
