Breitbart News has learned that Jenny’s beauty supplies, a cosmetic brand that sells beauty supplies and nail clippings, was also being used as a front for illegal drug sales.
The investigation began in early 2018 when the National Drug Intelligence Center received a tip from a third party that the company was selling marijuana to an undercover informant.
The source of the tip, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told the Drug Intelligence Centers that a woman who worked at Jenny’s purchased a bottle of “Blue Mountain” nail polish from the company.
The woman, who was in her 20s and who worked in the company’s store, told investigators that she believed the bottle contained marijuana and she paid a $50.00 fee for the product.
In addition to the $50 fee, the woman also purchased a $20.00 box of nail clipper blades.
The woman also stated that she purchased three boxes of nail polish at the same time.
The drug intelligence center then investigated the company and determined that the woman had purchased at least two boxes of product from the same location.
On March 8, 2018, the Drug Information Centers conducted a review of the products that the vendor had purchased and determined it to be illegal.
The Drugs Intelligence Centers received a letter from Jenny’s that contained information regarding the drug sale.
The letter stated that the product was purchased at a retail store and contained illegal drug paraphernalia.
The Drug Intelligence Centers investigation team immediately contacted the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), who conducted a background check of the vendor, and determined the products were sold illegally and that there was probable cause to believe the items were used for illegal purposes.
The DEA took the drugs and paraphernies to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento, California for further review.
On April 8, the DEA notified Jenny’s of the investigation and advised them that the products contained illegal drugs and that they were in violation of federal laws.
The agency also provided them with a confidential informant to assist in the investigation.
Jenny’s has been cooperating fully with the DEA, and the company has begun removing all items of marijuana and paraphenalia from the store.
Jenna Smith, president of the National Association of Beauty Supply Manufacturers, said that the FDA’s decision to take action against Jenny’s for selling marijuana is an important step in the fight against the sale of illegal drugs.
“These are serious issues and it’s great that the DEA is taking action, but it’s very important that this company, like any other, take action to remove illegal drugs from the market,” she said.
“It’s a win for consumers, but also for law enforcement, who can’t arrest the distributors of these products.
It’s a huge win for the health and safety of our nation’s consumers.”
Jenny has vowed to vigorously defend its business practices and will continue to remove products that are illegal under federal law.
The National Association for Beauty Supply manufacturers are working closely with the Drug Investigative Centers to continue the investigation into the company, and they are committed to working with all parties in the enforcement of federal law, including the DEA.JENNY’S, LLC, 912 West Avenue, Suite 201, Sacramento, CA 95814Contact: Jenny Smith, 719-931-6242Jenna S.
