In the first case of its kind in the nation, a Jessup businessman was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison yesterday for selling a candy sweetener to drug dealers who used it to dilute up to $500 million worth of heroin for street sales. John David Anderson, 37, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Baltimore by Judge Benson E. Legg after being convicted in December under the drug kingpin law, which until this case had been applied only to people who distribute drugs.
