LAS VEGAS (AP) — Six people are being accused of illegally operating a marijuana dispensary in Las Vegas.

The U.S. Attorney in Nevada announced Monday that federal charges were unsealed against three Nevadans and three Californians.

The indictment says the defendants operated a business called Alternative Solutions Marijuana Dispensary between July 2011 and Sept. 2012. It’s illegal to sell marijuana in Nevada, and state law doesn’t recognize dispensaries.

Defendants include 42-year-old Randy Ruley Phillips, 24-year-old Randy Allen Kim, and 24-year-old Andrew Yim of Las Vegas.

The California defendants are 27-year-old Jaclyn Mikie Sumarnkant, 28-year-old Quy Nguyen, and 37-year-old Michael Minh Quang Dinh.

They face up to twenty years in prison and fines of up to $1 million if they’re convicted on the charges, which include conspiracy and marijuana possession counts.
