I work in a head shop,

Customer Question

I work in a head shop, My main job is as a clairvoyant in this shop, but on occasions I assist in the shop if they are busy and the guy who pays my wages and owns the shop has a website that I assist on from time to time. Now the shop and the site carries some so called 'research chemicals' they are all marked not for human consumption and have the health warnings on them all, he has assured me that all products are unclassified and legal in the UK, but from time to time the law changes and bans do come in to play, but he is regularly sending products to be tested for quality and legality, I know very little about the research chems, but I do keep asking him questions to assure me that everything that we are doing in the shop is fine, which he does, but I can't keep questioning everything that he does as he is my boss. My question is can I be implicated if I am working for him and he does something to break the law, even if he is unaware at the time. BTW I am not saying that he has broken the law, I guess I am just paranoid that he could do without realizing it.

Hello,

If you do not have any intent to commit a crime e.g. Dealing in drugs, then you are not liable as criminal law requires intent to be present which you do not have.

As such, you do not need to worry about anything.

Can I help further?
