NASHVILLE, TN – When people go to Nashville, they usually head to the Country Music Hall of Fame, not the nearest convenience store. But three businesses in the music city were busted for selling “relaxation shots,” which contain illegal synthetic opiates.

The bottles were going for about $10 and police seized thousands of them.

Police say the main goal of the bust was to keep kids from getting their hands on them.
