Synthetic cannabis seized in tobacconist raid

POLICE have seized a quantity of synthetic cannabis during a series of raids across the Gold Coast this afternoon.

Officers from the Rapid Action Policing squad raided Free Choice Tobacco on the Gold Coast Highway at Miami.

The Bulletin reports that, during a search, police found about 10 grams of a substance believed to be synthetic cannabis.


The material will be forensically tested and a woman in her 20s is expected to be charged with supplying the drug.

Authorities have repeatedly warned of the serious danger from synthetic cannabis after four people using the drug died last year.
