Warning for synthetic cannabis sold as tea
Synthetic cannabis marketed as herbal tea is being sold in NSW despite it being illegal and potentially causing serious side effects.
Police have seized a quantity of Bangkok Betty Social Tonic Thai Tea, which is believed to be sold under the counter in some tobacconists, adult shops and online.
The NSW Food Authority has urged consumers to avoid the product, which might contain a synthetic form of cannabis and has the potential to cause serious health effects.
A teenage boy died in January after he took a synthetic cannabis substance called Kronic in the NSW Hunter region.
