Alabama Comic Store Goes To Pot

A number of comic creators do their best work on it. Some do their best work about it. Any plenty of comic readers have enjoyed their favourites while enjoying it.

But actually selling it, that's a no no.

Danny Wayne Barton of Kryptonite Komics/Good Karma in Alabama was arrested on Thursday on the charge of distributing unlawful substances  within a three mile radius of a school. The arresting officer stated that purchases of marijuana had been made at the store.

Not quite your traditional comic store, the owner had repurposed part of the business as a head shop, selling drugs paraphenalia.

If convicted, Danny faces a mandatory sentence of five years.
