Authorities are taking action against two people accused of selling synthetic marijuana.

Jarnail Manhani and Jaswant Sing are charged with Delivery and Possession of Synthetic Marijuana as well as Possession of Drug Paraphenalia.

Undercover agents say they purchased synthetic marijuana at the Petro Stop in Newton and the Kellogg Country store in Kellogg on three separate occasions.

A search of the stores turned up more than 2,800 grams of the substance.

Authorities say they launched the investigation following numerous complaints about the sale of K-2, which was banned last year.
