  • Lookalike Substance

    I was reading my local paper's blotter report and saw that a couple of people were arrested and jailed for a lookalike substance. What does that mean? Is it a substance that looks like it could be a drug, but there wasn't enough residue to be field tested? Just curious, because I've never seen it before.

But you can do that from behind a desk. In the end, you carry a gun and shield out into the field for the sole purpose of confronting the bad guys. The enemy. There is no other reason to be on the front lines." ~Nelson Demille

      Sell a bag of parsley as marijuana, and you get busted just like selling marijuana.

        Atleast in Va, it's considered Possesion of imitation drugs w/intent to give or sell. I put a guy in jail for eight years for selling bread that he cooked up wet in a microwave and tried to sell it as crack cocaine to support his heroin habit. His telling the judge his "recipe" helped my conviction.
