FARGO, N.D. — A Minneapolis man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in a synthetic drug conspiracy case in North Dakota.

Acting U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers on Monday announced the sentence against 24-year-old Casey Stevens Rosen.

Authorities say the conspiracy involved the distribution of hallucinogens through an online business called Motion Resources. The business imported illegal psychedelic hallucinogens from several countries and sold them throughout the United States.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Rosen and a co-conspirator distributed the hallucinogens throughout Grand Forks.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson also ordered Rosen to forfeit $100,000 and serve five years of supervised release.
