PLEASANTVILLE — An investigation into a smoke shop illegally selling marijuana led to the arrest of two men Tuesday, police said.
Police said they were alerted to illegal marijuana sales transpiring from The Gas Station at 18 N. Main St. The business focuses on selling "exceptional cannabis and tobacco products while offering expertise and knowledge on all matters concerning our herbology products," according to its website.
No one answered a call to The Gas Station on Thursday afternoon.
