A Weaverville store owner and another man have been charged with selling bath salts as part of a continuing crackdown on the dangerous synthetic drugs. Isam Jaradat, of Mars Hill, is accused of selling bath salts and synthetic marijuana. Jaradat is the operator of “Just Like That Smoke Shop” on Garrison Branch Road. Also charged was Randall Scott Braddock from Inman, S.C. Bath salts, designed to mimic the effects of cocaine, and synthetic marijuana, also known as spice and marketed as incense can cause bizarre behavior, serious illnesses, hallucinations and even death. These synthetic drugs are often sold at small, independent stores in misleading packaging that suggests common household items like bath salts, incense and plant food. U.S. laws prohibit the sale or possession of all substances that mimic illegal drugs, but only if federal prosecutors can show that they are intended for human use. People who make bath salts and similar drugs work around this by printing "not for human consumption" on virtually every packet. Jaradat and Braddock were both charged with multiple drug violations.
