A Brooklyn man has been indicted on charges that he ran website that allowed customers to set up drug deals with the click of a mouse.
Michael Bennett pleaded not guilty Tuesday at Suffolk County court to seven counts of criminal sale of marijuana—four counts as a felony, three as a misdemeanor.
Police arrested the 21-year-old Bay Ridge man July 12. Prosecutors said Bennett ran Suffolk Sensi, a still-functioning website that touts itself as “Long Island’s Premiere Flower Delivery Service.”
Prices on the site are advertised as low as $80 for an eighth to $550 for an ounce. Hashish is also advertised between $120 and $650.
It also offers recipes for pot brownies, links to marijuana legalization advocacy groups and lists its “flavor of the week” as Tangerine Dream.
Bennett is reportedly a former U.S. Marine who served in Afghanistan. A judge set bail for Bennett at $100,000 cash or $200,000 bond. He is due back in court Aug. 22.
