High School Students Protest SyntheticDrugs-Ultimate Smoke Shop Gets Closed Down

11 Connects learned earlier today the business at the focus of a student protest Thursday evening will soon close its doors at its Bobby Hicks Highway location in Gray. UPDATE: We learned that the store will definitely close today.

The reason for the student protest: they want lawmakers to enact a ban on synthetic drugs.

According to Scott Buckingham, one of the owners of the shopping center where the store was located, the student protests led to the owner's decision.

"Yesterday afternoon, the young adults taking a stand helped make his (Ultimate Smoke's) decision to move out," said Buckingham.
