Ex-convenience store owner gets a year behind bars for selling synthetic marijuana

A Lackawanna man who pleaded guilty to selling the synthetic cannabinoid known as “spice” was sentenced Tuesday to a year in prison by Senior U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny.

Adel Abdullah, 32, had pleaded guilty Dec. 17 to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute controlled substance analogues. The drug was sold at the Speedy Market, 1799 Genesee St., his former Buffalo convenience store. U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. described “spice” and the chemicals used to make it as a major public health hazard.
