A manager at a smoke shop in Valley Stream was arrested after Nassau police discovered vape cartridges containing tetrahydrocannabinol — the active ingredient in cannabis — being sold without a license.
Lara Vasilakos, 44, was taken into custody on Feb. 23 — the latest in a spate of individual arrests for similar violations at smoke shops and convenience stores across Long Island.
Police also seized the THC-laced products and cash from the Spot Convenience Smoke Shop on Rockaway Avenue.
Vasilakos was charged with criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance and arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead. She is due back in court on March 2.
