Pot or hemp? NYPD and business disagree
Over the weekend, the NYPD boasted on social media about confiscating a massive amount of marijuana. The department tweeted a photo showing two officers posing with dozens of bags of what it said was pot. But the co-owner of a Brooklyn-based online hemp business called Green Angel CBD said that the cops made a huge mistake. Oren Levy says cops confiscated a shipment of legal hemp that he ordered from a farm in Vermont and wrongly arrested his brother, too.
