WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. - Wisconsin Dells police seized nearly $60,000 worth of fake marijuana from a cigar shop last Friday.

Accord to a statement, the Wisconsin Dell Police Department searched the Loon Lake Cigar Shop to find more than 13 pounds of an herbal substance that claims to mimic the effects of marijuana.
