Ga. company that makes bath salts banned in W.Va. | Business
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Georgia company that makes bath salts and other synthetic drug chemicals is temporarily banned from selling or advertising them in West Virginia.
Attorney General Darrell McGraw announced Thursday that a judge had granted a preliminary injunction banning Alpharetta-based Nutragenomics Manufacturing LLC from doing business in the state.
McGraw sued the company in April, claiming it was a "significant distributor" of ingredients used to make drugs known as bath salts and synthetic marijuana, among other things. Synthetic marijuana has been banned in Georgia.
The injunction requires the company to prominently place a notice on its website that it is banned from selling to West Virginia customers. It also must provide a database of all its customers from West Virginia from Jan. 1, 2008, to the present and the amount of products they ordered.
