North Dakota man gets prison for synthetic marijuana

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A co-owner of a Mandan smoke shop has been sentenced to two years in prison for conspiring to sell synthetic marijuana.

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A co-owner of a Mandan smoke shop has been sentenced to two years in prison for conspiring to sell synthetic marijuana.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that a judge sentenced 35-year-old Ryan Zueger Tuesday to five years in prison with all but two years suspended and five years of supervised probation.

The sentence will be stayed — meaning Zueger will be on probation but will not serve time in prison — until the case can be appealed to the North Dakota Supreme Court.

A jury convicted Zueger and William Nickel, another co-owner of Big Willies ATP, of felony conspiracy to deliver synthetic cannabinoids in August. Charges against a third person were dismissed.
