Charlie Sheen confirmed in an interview last year that he indeed was on a drug: "It's called Charlie Sheen." 

Apparently the same is true for some in suburban Chicago.

Two men were busted in unincorporated Lombard last month for possessing and selling bath salts called Charley Sheene, complete with a drawing of the former "Two and a Half Men" star.

A million dollars' worth of synthetic cannabis, drug paraphernalia and Charley Sheene bath salts, as well as more than $5,000 in cash, were seized Dec. 15 from Sergio’s Discount Smoke Shop, at 21W500 North Ave., the DuPage County Sheriff's Office said Friday.

George Rantis, of the 5N800 block of Fairway Drive in St. Charles, and Sergio Delcid, of the 4400 block of St. Louis Ave., were charged with manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance of more than 200 grams, a Class X felony.

The state banned the possession and sale of synthetic pot and bath salts last year.

“These newer substances pose a significant threat to the health and wellbeing of the youths in our community,” said Sheriff Zaruba in a statement.
