A Connecticut man is accused of distributing Methylone, also known as “Molly” and “bath salts” using college students and other young people all through New York State, Connecticut and elsewhere to help distribute the drugs.

Federal prosecutors for Northern District of New York say 39 year old Ryan Canfield of New Haven was convicted on Friday following a four day trial for working with co-conspirators to get the drugs from China and using a commercial pill press to covert Methylone into pills that he marketed to people he referred to as “young fools.”

Canfield was charged with conspiracy and eight counts of using a communication facility to facilitate the commission of a felony.

Canfield faces up to 30 years in prison and a lifetime of post-jail supervision.

He is to be sentenced in August.
