An Illinois mom took down a drug ring she blames for her son's death.

In 2011, Karen Dobner's 19-year-old son, Max Dobner, smoked synthetic cannabis and suffered hallucinations and anxiety, which caused him to drive 100 mph into a house, accidentally killing himself, CBS News reported.

Since then Karen Dobner has fought for justice against the people who manufactured, distributed and sold her son the drug iAroma, which contains mushroom leaves sprayed with chemicals.

Central to the incident is Ruby Moshin, owned a store at a mall in Aurora, Illinois, where Max Dobner and a friend bought the drug.

According to The Daily Mail, Moshin is a 55-year-old widow and mother of three who marketed the drug as potpourri however, prosecutors said the woman intentionally sold the substance as a recreational drug.

Moshin was jailed with three others in 2015, after an attorney hired by Karen Dobner discovered a distribution network through which people were selling the substance illegally nationwide.

"It was the whole chain — she wanted to go after the whole distribution chain," said the attorney, Shawn Collins, according to CBS News.

"Through our investigation, we learned that there was literally a nationwide distribution network – North Carolina, Iowa, Texas, Louisiana."

Moshin will serve two years in jail, CBS reported.
