SW Idaho jury convicts 4 of making, selling spice
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A jury in southwestern Idaho has convicted four people of manufacturing and selling large quantities of synthetic marijuana products.

The Ada County prosecutor's office says guilty verdicts were returned Monday for Tashina Alley, Charlynda Goggin, Cadee Jo Peterson and Mathew Taylor on charges including conspiracy to deliver synthetic cannabinoids and selling drug paraphernalia.

These synthetic marijuana products are commonly marketed as spice or potpourri and are composed of herbs that have been sprayed with a compound similar to the THC found in marijuana. Prosecutors say the four defendants were involved in the sale of these products from the Red Eye Hut Smoke Shop in Boise.

A fifth person charged in the case, Morgan Alley, pleaded guilty in July.
