The owner of this store is willingly selling cigarettes, bath salts and incense that the kids are crushing, rolling and smoking.  These are "legal" drugs (such as "Down to Earth Climax" and "Cloud 9") that have not been tested for any short or long term effects.  These drugs are just as bad, if not worse than the "illegal" drugs.  Kids love to do these drugs because there is no test that you can give them that will show they are ingesting them. Many kids in Quakertown are hooked on these designer drugs and as a result have skipped school, stolen from others and are in and out of rehab as a direct result of what this company is doing. Please boycott this place for the sake of the safety and welfare of our community's children. They have ripped off the futures of all of the kids that are purchasing these products.

Well, how about using them as a bath salt or incense? Even if they are used for the sole purpose of getting high, are they legal where you live? If so is there a legal age to purchase them? If they are legal and no minimum age, then the store is not doing anything wrong. If you can prove a connection between these drugs and what is happening in your community to your children, then why not spend your energy petitioning your lawmakers to change the laws? We did that here in missouri and outlawed these bath salts. Until then, this store is under no obligation to monitor the sales of these salt. Also, they are likely behind the counter to prevent theft of them, not to keep them away from people.

I would normally agree with things like huffing, that the store can still continue to sell the product but these bath salts and incense are kept behind the counter and are obviously used for the sole purpose of getting high.  It doesn't make sense that someone in the community would sell a product like that knowing what it is for.  There are no other uses for this product.

I'm not sure where the ripoff is here. While those bath salts are indeed very dangerous and can harm people, if they are legal where you live i"m not sure what you expect the store to do. Its like kids huffing paint, or drinking robotussin to get high. Now, the cigarettes are a different issue and you shoudl contact your local law enforcement of that issue.
