Canadian Man Pleads Guilty To Smuggling Ecstasy, Pot

BOSTON (AP) – A Canadian man has pleaded guilty to charges he imported marijuana and MDMA, also known as ecstasy, from Canada into the United States.

U.S. Massachusetts Attorney Carmen Ortiz says Gurshuran Singh, of Brampton, Ontario, pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in Boston to conspiracy to distribute MDMA and marijuana and money laundering conspiracy. The 33-year-old Singh was arrested in Canada in May 2014.

Prosecutors say Singh agreed with a co-conspirator to transport MDMA and marijuana over the border and into Michigan from 2011 to March 2012. A courier then drove the drugs to Jonathan Rabinovitch, of Salem, Massachusetts, who sold them and returned the proceeds to Canada.

Rabinovitch was sentenced in February 2015 to 24 months in prison.

Singh is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 7.
