A 19-year-old Tauranga man is facing up to eight years' jail after admitting importing, manufacturing, possessing and selling drugs.

In the Hamilton District Court yesterday, David Allan Dunstan pleaded guilty to six charges, including one representative, relating to the ecstasy-type drug bk-MDMA and ecstasy hallucinogenic 2-CI.

Dunstan's lawyer Paul Mabey, QC, said his client lived at home with his parents and had not appeared before the court before.

Dunstan was aware that the charges carried a maximum penalty of eight years' prison, Mr Mabey told Judge Philip Connell.

The judge convicted Dunstan, warning him that he was "in a very difficult spot" regarding the charges he faced.
