An Ada County jury found four people guilty Monday of conspiring to sell synthetic cannabinoids known to users as spice, potpourri and K2 out of the Red Eye Hut Smoke Shop on Camas Street in Boise, the Ada County Prosecutor's Office said in a release Monday afternoon.
Spice is a mixture of herbs sprayed with a synthetic compound similar to the chemical THC found in marijuana. The legislature outlawed the drug last year.
Morgan Alley, one of the owners of the Red Eye Hut, pleaded guilty in July to felony manufacture of a controlled substance. He will be sentenced at 9 a.m. on Sept. 11.
On Monday, his wife, Tashina Alley, was found guilty of conspiracy to deliver synthetic cannabinoids and selling drug paraphernalia. Three others found guilty of conspiring to sell synthetic cannabinoids were: Charlynda Goggin, Cadee Jo Peterson and Matthew Taylor. All four will be sentenced at 9 a.m. on Oct. 2.
In September last year, Boise police raided the Alleys' home, their business and a warehouse. Investigators said they found 30,000 jars of spice.
They found raw materials for the drugs in the warehouse on South Cole and Overland roads, as well as 20,250 jars of finished product in bottles labeled Twizted Potpourri.
