Before 1989, reverse stings were common tools used by police to discourage the buying of illegal drugs. But that year, a Washington County Circuit Court judge ruled that it wasn't illegal to buy a fake drug.
With that ruling, police began "lacing" the fake drugs with enough real drugs to qualify.
In 1991, the law was changed in Maryland making it a crime to purchase fake drugs, believed to be real drugs, according to Washington County State's Attorney Ken Long.
