Kansas City Coffee Shop Sells Fake Pot, Arguably Real Coffee

At Coffee Wonk in Kansas City, owner Micah Riggs offers “premium coffees, muffins, pastries, specialty soft drinks and much more”. Police allege that “much more” includes a synthetic marijuana replacement known as “Syn”, a clone of the more popular “K-2” brand of fake pot recently banned by Missouri.

Assistant prosecutor Dawn Parsons claims that in Missouri, K-2 clones don’t get dealers off the hook, and police say that Riggs was simply selling a K-2 cousin under new packaging.

Prosecutors says Riggs had hired his own chemist to create legal versions of K-2 in a lab above his coffee shop. But again prosecutors say there’s no such thing as a legal version and now the chemist has been charged with a crime as well.

There’s no information online concerning the coffee served at Coffee Wonk, but the article goes on to say that synthetic marijuana is the “best-selling product” at the shop.

Meanwhile, baristas in Portland, Seattle and San Francisco continue to be tipped in fat buds…
