CBD supplier suing the Idaho State Police

 

A federal judge in Boise heard arguments Monday from attorneys for a Colorado-based CBD supplier suing the Idaho State Police to get back 7,000 pounds of what it says is legal industrial hemp that was seized last month by ISP at the East Boise Port of Entry during an inspection.

Big Sky Scientific is asking for a judge to allow the shipment, now seized as evidence in a controlled-substance trafficking case, to proceed on to Colorado where it can be processed.

However, attorneys for ISP say any substance containing any amount of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, is illegal under Idaho law even if it is less than .3 percent as is usually the case with hemp, a cannabis cousin of marijuana, which is used in a variety of products.

Idaho doesn’t have the necessary equipment to test for THC levels so samples of the confiscated product have been sent to Kentucky.

CBS 2 TV reports, results could take weeks.
