WATERTOWN, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) — New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced Jan. 18 that Kenneth Wayne Hamm must pay $10,000 in penalties and turn over revenue gained from allegedly illegal drug sales.

Hamm owns and operates Trip on the Wild Side II, a head shop in Watertown, New York. According to Schneiderman’s office, Trip on the Wild Side II sold mislabeled and misbranded drugs. Alleged conduct of this nature violates a 2012 court order against the company that expressly barred such sales.

“Misbranded and mislabeled drugs sold to the public are dangerous and illegal,” Schneiderman said. “My office will continue to hold accountable businesses seeking to profit at the expense of New Yorkers as we take on the drug crisis facing our communities.”

Under the terms of the settlement, Trip on the Wild Side II has been further barred from selling misbranded and mislabeled kratom and Cannabidiol. In addition to the $10,000 civil penalty, the company must give to Schneiderman’s office $1,838 in revenue from sales of the drug.

Handling the case for New York were assistant attorney general in charge of the Watertown Regional Office, Deanna R. Nelson, and assistant attorney general Alicia M. Lendon. Executive deputy attorney general for regional affairs Martin J. Mack oversees the regional offices.
