HART — A 26-year-old Wyoming, Michigan man was sentenced to nine months in jail in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Feb. 3, for a conviction of possession with intent to deliver ketamine.

James Joseph Kline III, of 2606 Thornwood Ave., SW, was arrested by the State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) on felony charges of delivery/manufacture of methamphetamine/ecstasy, delivery/manufacture of narcotic/cocaine less than 50 grams and delivery/manufacture of a controlled substance.

The other charges were dismissed in a plea agreement.

The offense occurred at the Electric Forest Festival in Rothbury last summer, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

“Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic used in human anesthesia and veterinary medicine,” according to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. Much of the ketamine sold on the street has been diverted from veterinarians’ offices.

Some slang terms for the drug are “Cat Tranquilizer,” “Cat Valium,” “Jet K, “Kit Kat,” “Purple,” “Special K,” “Special La Coke,” “Super Acid,” “Super K” and “Vitamin K,” according to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids.

Kline was also sentenced by Judge Bradley G. Lambrix to 18 months probation. He received credit for 114 days served in jail, Bizon said.
