Attorney general issues cease-and-desist orders against synthetic drug seller

Nov 16, 2012 (The Bismarck Tribune - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The North Dakota Attorney General's Office has issued another order to stop a business from selling synthetic drug alternatives.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem announced Thursday that cease-and-desist orders were served at two Minot Hemp Horizonz locations and its owner, Joseph Skorick. The orders ban them from selling synthetic substances.

Stenehjem's office served a similar order on Mandan's Big Willies ATP on Wednesday.

The orders allege the shops are violating consumer fraud laws and the North Dakota Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act by not listing ingredients, manufacturers or distributors. The packages contain labels that say "not for human consumption," but Stenehjem said no other use for the products is known.

Law enforcement officers said they conducted an undercover operation at Hemp Horizonz on Wednesday, during which employees of the store sold multiple packages of synthetic street drug alternatives and told the customers the products "tasted good." Stenehjem said his office will continue to investigate other possible sellers of the products and will file orders against known sellers. His office has received tips about more of them.

"I will continue my investigations for as long as these dangerous drugs are being sold anywhere in this state," he said.

Stenehjem told the North Dakota Board of Pharmacy on Thursday that his office has received an "astounding" number of calls and emails thanking him for taking action against synthetic drug sellers.

Stenehjem encouraged anyone with information about ongoing sales of synthetic products to call the Bureau of Criminal Investigations tip line at 800-472-2185.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
