The owner of an Oakland food factory that churned out pot-laced candy and other foods has pleaded guilty to conspiring to manufacture and distribute marijuana. Federal prosecutors said 34-year-old Michael J. Martin of El Sobrante admitted in U.S. District Court on Wednesday that he was a partner in the business, Tainted Inc. Pro-pot advocates say the company made products for medical marijuana clubs.

Law enforcement officials reported seizing marijuana-infused candy bars called Buddafingas and Stoners at the factory wrapped in packages mimicking Butterfingers and Snickers. Authorities said the factory also added pot to such foods as honey, soda and barbecue sauce. Martin faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He is scheduled to be sentenced in July.
