Epping man admits to using a cement mixer to make synthetic marijuana


CONCORD – Ryan Johnson, of Epping, pleaded guilty Wednesday on drug charges.

According to Fosters.com, Johnson admitted to manufacturing synthetic marijuana in a cement mixer.

The 32-year-old also admitted to including other controlled substances into the synthetic products, packaging them and distributing them to others.

When authorities searched his residence they found a cement mixer, acetone, empty chemical containers and garbage bags filled with synthetic cannabinoids. Cannabinoids, according to the U.S. attorney’s office, are sprayed with chemicals and marketed as incense. Despite being labeled “not for human consumption” many get high off of the chemicals.

Johnson could face up to five years in prison, a fine of $250,000 and three years of supervised release.

Police are still investigating and no sentencing date for Johnson has been set.
