Sioux Falls Man Pleads Guilty in Synthetic Drug Conspiracy
SIOXU FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man has pleaded guilty to selling synthetic drugs.
Federal authorities say 24-year-old Brandon Morrison sold the hallucinogens to businesses in Sioux Falls. The drugs were then sold to customers.
Morrison pleaded guilty Friday to one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance and one count of money laundering. He allegedly deposited the illegal proceeds into his personal bank account.

Morrison faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison on the two charges. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 2.
