Owner of Marijuana Storefront Sentenced to Prison for Drug Dealing

APRIL 12 (SEATTLE) – Jing Jing Mo, 32–year-old Seattle woman who co-owned and operated two marijuana storefronts was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to 42 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to engage in money laundering.  Mo was a co-owner of Seattle Cannabis Cooperative with locations in the Rainier Valley and Greenwood.  She and her partner, Craig Douglas Dieffenbach, 61, pleaded guilty in August 2012.  Both admitted selling marijuana for profit under the guise of running a cooperative for sick people. 

In her plea agreement, Mo admitted offering to sell 25 pounds of marijuana for distribution across the country.  The couple also admitted laundering funds from the sale of marijuana to pay to modify homes for marijuana production.  The pair were also tied in to other drug traffickers including one distributing substantial amounts of ecstasy.  The couple admitted operating the marijuana stores for profit, selling pound quantities of marijuana to people who presented no medical authorization card.

In asking for the 42 month sentence, prosecutors told the court that Mo was dealing drugs, for profit, in blatant violation of both the letter, and the spirit, of state and federal law.  MO is a citizen of Singapore who likely will be deported following her prison term.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
