BOZEMAN - An MSU student accused of receiving a package in the mail containing research drugs has been charged with possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute.

Mason E. Kirschner, 18, was seen in Gallatin County Justice Court Tuesday morning. Kirschner faces a $5,000 bond.

According to charging documents, Kirschner was receiving a package in the mail from research drug company in California to his dorm room in North Hedges at MSU. The Missouri River Drug Task Force was aware of the shipment and located 56 white pills, identified as Etizolam by the company and 30 orange pills identified as Clonazolam. Kirschner reportedly stated the drugs he ordered produced a physiological effect similar to or greater than Xanax, a Schedule IV drug per Montana Code.

Kirschner was stopped by investigators as he entered his room carrying the package.

Kirschner’s next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 27, 2017.
