Molly’s Plant Food is still being sold as a synthetic drug in Murfreesboro. There were two arrests this past week where the alleged drug dealers told police they were in possession of Molly’s Plant Food for the purpose of resale. WGNS' Rafferty Cleary has more...

Verbatim: One subject told police he sold the synthetic drug to supplement his income as a waiter. A second suspect admitted to officers that he sold it to pay for rent and food.


 The drug was once sold at gas stations throughout the state. On March 11, 2011, the Tennessee Attorney General's Office filed a lawsuit in Davidson County Chancery Court related to a synthetic drug sold under the name of Molly's Plant Food. The Court issued a temporary restraining order and seizure order to stop retail establishments from selling the product to consumers. 

  The law (2011 Tennessee Public Acts, Chapter 169) became effective May 5, 2011.  This Act  creates the offense of a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a sentence of up to 11 months and 29 days, and a maximum fine of $2,500, or both, to “knowingly produce, manufacture, distribute, sell, offer for sale or possess with intent to produce, manufacture, distribute, sell or offer for sale” any capsule, pill, or other product containing any of the six listed combinations (or any mixture of the listed chemical combinations) of synthetic derivatives of methcathinone.
