Feds bust 18 in multistate marijuana ring

ALEXANDRIA, Va. —     Federal prosecutors in  Alexandria say they have dismantled a nationwide marijuana trafficking ring that  took high-grade pot grown in California and distributed it nationwide.  The ringleaders allegedly used college athletes to market the marijuana on  campuses.  Eighteen people have been charged; all but one are in custody.

Court documents describe the ringleader as 46-year-old Anthony Guidry Sr., also of Vallejo. Guidry allegedly  recruited distributors to sell marijuana in cities and college campuses in Virginia, Georgia, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  According to an affidavit, Guidry bought wholesale marijuana for as little as  $1,200 a pound and sold it at retail for $5,000 a pound. Investigators estimate  the conspiracy generated at least $2 million in profit. More than 70 pounds of  marijuana were seized.
