Police say eighteen business in Jacksonville and Onslow County was raided today as authorities investigate “Black Magic” being sold at the businesses.
For many of you that don’t know what “Black Magic” is, it is a type of oil that police say contains illegal substances.
Police say they raided most tobacco or vape businesses. Jacksonville Police, Onslow County deputies and NCIS began their investigation in October after there were multiple medical emergencies with symptoms ranging from hallucinations, loss of consciousness, difficulty breathing, chest pains, disorientation, and loss of memory.
“Black Magic“, along with “Pure Magic“, “White Knight”, Black Diamond” and “Zen” tested positive for containing an indazole carboxamide, which is a Schedule I controlled substance, according to authorities.
