UNDATED- Almost another 200 pounds of synthetic marijuana was seized on Thursday by law enforcement authorities in Fayette County as officials state wide continue the crackdown on the newly outlawed substance.

The makers of the drug altered the chemical makeup of the substance, then put it back on the shelves for sale.

According to Fox-5, law enforcement responded once again and declared it a controlled substance allowing it to be confiscated.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office confiscated more than 1,900 bags of synthetic marijuana a night earlier from five different locations in the county.

The drug is sometimes referred to as bath salts, K2 or Spice.
