No doubt you have asked for me because you may have seen a previous answer I had given here
As I predicted, the laws continued to get tighter and tighter. Now, the following is illegal in Texas - here
, and in Florida - here
. In addition, the federal government has made the following illegal: CP-47,497;cannabicyclohexanol or CP-47,497 C8-homolog; JWH-018 and AM678; JWH-073; JWH-019; JWH-200; JWH-250; JWH-081; JWH-122; JWH-398; AM2201; AM694; SR-19 and RCS-4; SR-18 and RCS-8; JWH-203, and virtually any "cannabimimetic agents"
that are cannabinoid receptor type 1.
In July of 2012, the federal government undertook a massive sting to take down major operations and dealers of herbal incense.
At this time, if your business is shutting down, and you are no longer doing anything, it may be safe to say that likely, the authorities would not seek prosecution (yes, sending something that is legal in FL but not legal in TX to TX may be illicit under TX law; plus, federal law in any case). Is PB22 counted in TX? FL? Federal law? Not sure about TX or FL but federal law - yes, arguably.
Someone in your situation may wish to:
1) If there is a website, to make clear on the website that the company has shut down and STATE so (i.e. our company has shut down to comply with new laws by the state and federal agencies" for example). This should also be on any voice mail greetings, etc;
2) Destroy all product left over;
3) Terminate and wind up the corporation.
If the authorities see that the company has been shut down and the individuals behind it are no longer doing anything and are actively seeking to ensure that no law is broken, they are likely to leave you alone. While I cannot speak for the authorities, it may be safe to say that if the company has not gotten into trouble so far while it WAS in operation, it likely will not now. So while it is natural to be a little worried, chances are that this will blow over for you.
However, the steps above should be done, in my opinion.
The days of herbal incense are effectively over. I am sorry.
