    ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia (AP) - Whatever happened to chocolate, vanilla and strawberry? A court in southern Russia has banned the sale of Ukrainian ice cream that hit the shelves under names alluding to drugs, such as ``Your Hemp Dose'' and ``Poppy Fun,'' a drug control official said Friday.

    Narcotics officers in the city of Rostov-on-Don filed suit after noticing the ice cream in kiosks, and a district court ordered the product removed from all shops and other points of sale in the region, said Larisa Maslova, spokeswoman for the Rostov region drug control department.

    Tests revealed no illegal substances in the ice cream, but authorities said ``psycholinguistic and narco-psychological research'' confirmed the labels could ``create and support an interest in narcotic drugs made from hemp and opium poppy,'' the ITAR-Tass news agency reported.

    The company that made the ice cream is Laska, based in Dnipropetrovsk in Ukraine.


    There were no drugs in the they banned perfectly legit gag products right?

    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.
