A Bronx court stopped upstate stores from selling synthetic marijuana to residents across the state, including the Bronx.
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman petitioned the court to block Surrealistic Sensations in Erie County and Liquid Shop in Rockland County after investigators found the substances feature misleading labels.
The Surrealistic Sensations website describes itself as a shop specializing in "in rare exotic medicinal, psychoactive and oneirogenic (dream enhancing) botanicals" that sells products worldwide.
"It is designed to look like a health food product," Schneiderman told reporters. "It is designed to send the message that it's good for you — that it's sort of like an herbal remedy."

Undercover investigations from the state reported the business violated state labeling laws by selling and promoting dangerous and illegal drugs across the state and the Bronx.
The investigation into the drugs sales that were offered as "legal highs" comes as the state and New York City wages battle on synthetic marijuana, or K2, being sold throughout the city's bodegas for less than $10 a packet.
A K2 crackdown in recent weeks have led to multiple busts of local bodegas and corner stores selling the product, which was recently criminalized by the City Council
