An Iowa City man accused of running a fake identification operation and making psychedelic drugs in his apartment has pleaded guilty to the drug charge.
Anders Wade Haig, 20, will be sentenced Sept. 19 after he pleaded guilty to manufacturing psilocybin. Psilocybin is a psychedelic drug that can produce hallucinations. Police discovered the drug growing operation, as well as an operation that produced fake drivers' licenses so the user would appear to be the legal drinking age during a raid on his apartment in November 2007. He pleaded guilty to possession of a fictitious license, a serious misdemeanor, in June and will be sentenced Aug. 13, according to online court records.
Manufacture of psilocybin is a Class C felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
