TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors allege three Kansas men ran a worldwide synthetic marijuana operation that made them millions of dollars.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced the indictment Wednesday against 55-year-old Bradley Miller of Wichita; his brother, 54-year-old Clark Sloan of Tonganoxie; and Sloan's son, 32-year-old Jonathon Sloan, of Lawrence. They are charged with conspiracy, distribution of misbranded drugs, mail fraud and smuggling.

Prosecutors allege the men began by selling the synthetic marijuana known as K2 in Lawrence and then expanded to an international business. Federal officials say the men sold the products as incense but always intended that they be smoked like marijuana.

The indictment says the men marketed and distributed their products across the United States and from South America to Asia and Eastern Europe.
