Man Accused Of Selling Pot-laced Candies At Maryland Fair

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) – Authorities say a Virginia man sold assorted candies laced with marijuana out of a booth at a fair in Maryland.

The Frederick News-Post reports that 24-year- old Robert Andrew Cody Mc- Gee pleaded guilty last Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. McGee was charged after an undercover County Sheriff’s deputy purchased $80-worth of products from him at The Great Frederick Fair in September 2016.

Authorities say state lab tests had found the products contained cannabinol.

Assistant State’s Attorney Colleen Swanson told the judge that prosecutors will seek a six-month sentence and two years’ probation upon release. McGee’s attorney, James DeLorenzo, will argue that McGee be sentenced to the more than a month he’s already served awaiting extradition. McGee’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 31.
