CONCORD, N.H. -- Brian Kleynen was a recent graduate from Keene State College and living in Chelmsford in 2003 when he began smoking marijuana on a regular basis.
At the time, Kleynen was in a difficult point in his life, trying to make decisions about potential careers, possible long-term relationships and all of the other matters facing recent college graduates, his lawyer wrote in a sentencing memorandum.
It was then that a neighborhood friend, Rene Joyal, asked if Kleynen was interested in selling pot as an easy way to make some extra money, according to court documents. Kleynen jumped at the change.
Five years later, Kleynen, 29, now living in Las Vegas, was one of nine people convicted in U.S. District Court for importing "hundreds of kilograms'' of marijuana from Canada and Mexico and distributing it from Tyngsboro, Nashua and Manchester to points all over southern New England.
The drugs were sometimes hauled in snowmobile trailers or tractor-trailers hauling hay from Canada or by trucks through Texas.
Kleynen was sentenced Friday to two years in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for his role in the New Hampshire-based marijuana smuggling ring.
