The Union County Prosecutor’s Office says 39-year-old Shabib Al Ramadina was selling synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia out of Brothers Food Market in Elizabeth.

Officials found more than 300 5-gram packages of the drugs at his home and workplace.

Police also discovered more than $1,100 in cash in the store.

The drugs have an estimated street value of $6,200.

Synthetic marijuana has infiltrated the U.S. market, despite efforts to ban it.

They are often marketed as being legal under names like “spice,” and often contain chemicals that mimic THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Al Ramadina is charged with numerous drug offenses.

No one answered the phone at the store.
