BLACKSBURG, VA -

A Blacksburg woman will serve prison time for selling a controlled substance.

Montgomery County Commonwealth's Attorney Mary Pettitt says a judge sentenced 25-year-old Jamie Lynn Dean to five years in prison on Wednesday, for selling a drug commonly referred to as "Foxy" or "Foxy Methoxy."

According to the University of Maryland's Center for Substance Abuse Research (CESAR), the drug is a hallucinogenic that changes the way you see the world, similar to psychedelic mushrooms, and ecstasy.  CESAR notes law enforcement saying Foxy is an "emerging drug of abuse."

Pettit said the judge will allow Dean to be released on supervised probation after serving two years in prison, if she maintains good behavior.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office arrested Dean last year, after a confidential informant bought two pills of Foxy from Dean for $50.
