The Pennsylvania Attorney General has charged four Penn State University students and three others in a broad conspiracy to distribute mass quantities of marijuana throughout State College. A.G. Tom Corbett says the investigation focused on Penn State student Paul Spara and New York resident, Jason Remington. They are allegedly responsible for the distribution of more than 400 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $1.2 million. The drugs allegedly came from Canada into the United States through an Indian reservation. The grand jury says Spara received 10 to 50 pounds of marijuana from on a weekly basis. Spara then allegedly supplied drugs to at least five individuals who then sold the drugs widely. Many of the ultimate customers are said to have been Penn State Students.
