Local Owner Fighting Back for Right to Sell CBD Oil

This past summer, a controversy arose in the state over CBD oil. 
CBD oil comes from hemp and has no THC in it but does have cannibidoil --- a schedule one drug as classified by the D-E-A

In May, all CBD oil products were confiscated from Terry's Health Products and the food Co-Op.
Terry's owner is fighting back against this action, even taking her case to court.
Lonna Brooks is using her store's confiscation story in a lawsuit against the DEA--- made by the Hemp Industry Association.
She says the argument is that CBD Oil should not be considered a schedule one drug and that this law is not enforced equally across the country -- or even the state.
  
Lonna Brooks; Owner of Terry's Health Products: "There's still retailers across the state that are selling it. Their law enforcement departments have left them alone. They could care less in their city. That's the frustrating part for me. My local customers have to either go elsewhere, order it online."

Brooks says CBD oil should be protected under the farm bill, in the same way all hemp products are. She and the Hemp Industry Association is gearing up for their court date, which will be this spring.
