Police in Georgia are reportedly returning $30,000 worth of THC products they seized from a store after a judge ruled that the seizure was not in accordance with the law.

According to a report, Sahlil Kumar’s shop in Madison County was raided, and Kumar said product was taken from his shelves and money from his cash register.

Those products, however, are known as CBD delta-8 products, and like marijuana, they do contain THC. But it is a very small amount of THC – less than 0.3 percent to be exact. And, according to reports, that is not against the law in Georgia. Turns out, the Peach State passed a law back in 2019 to make hemp legal. But, per reports, it was a broad law, and police responded with raids of local stores.

Kumar was not the store owner to be raiding though because he lawyered up. And, his lawyer, Devn Rafus, proved the products he was selling were legal. In Georgia, the delta-8 and delta-10 products, both containing the small amounts of THC, are legal to sell. Delta-9 products are illegal to sell.

That appears to be at the heart of the police confusion.

“All they have to do is have a Georgia legislator write into law that delta-8 is illegal,” Rafus said in the report. Until that time, it can be sold. It can be used by individuals in Georgia.”

But that day won’t come before something you rarely ever see — police turning over THC prodcuts to be resold to the public – occurs.
