Two sentenced for selling synthetic pot

Two people were sentenced in federal court Wednesday for helping distribute synthetic marijuana.

50-year-old Jimmy Moore and 45-year-old Tina Moore each pleaded guilty to committing mail fraud by labeling their synthetic marijuana products as incense and “not for human consumption,” when they were actually manufactured to be used as a drug.

The Moores operated a shop in Queen City, where they bought synthetic pot from distributors and sold it for a total of $291,999 between April 2012 and January 2013.

Co-defendant Charles Austin pleaded guilty to money laundering last week. Austin is the owner of the Puff-N-Snuff smoke shop in Camdenton and Eldon.
