A Hopatcong family has been sentenced after allegedly operating a marijuana edibles facility out of their home. According to the New Jersey Herald, Eric Fiorito, a cancer patient with a medical marijuana license, was sentenced to 10 years in state prison with 48 months of parole ineligibility.
The 52-year-old was reportedly arrested on after an undercover investigation by detectives with the Sussex County Narcotic Task Force and the Hopatcong Police Department. A search of Fiorito's home allegedly lead to the discovery of six pounds of marijuana edibles, two ounces of marijuana, 100 grams of THC vapor cartridges, and items used to make THC-infused edibles.
Eric's wife, Gladys Fiorito, and son, Shawn Fiorito, were both sentenced to community service and offered pretrial intervention which means their charges will be dismissed once they complete the program.
