Charges Dropped Over CBD Shop’s Shipment Of 106 Pounds Of Hemp, Not Marijuana

Levy was arrested Nov. 2 after trying to pick up the shipment

Prosecutors have dropped charges against a man accused of picking up 106 pounds of marijuana that was actually hemp bound for a CBD shop in Brooklyn.

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office dismissed Ronen Levy’s marijuana possession case on Tuesday, reports CBS2’s Marc Liverman.

Levy was arrested Nov. 2 after trying to pick up 106 pounds of plants estimated to be valued at $17,000, but the brothers said it’s value to their business is actually worth $60,000 to them.

“Everything could have been cut short just by looking at the right papers and going the right channels,” said Ronen Levy. “That was not done. Thank God today that the court looked over all the paperwork and dropped our charges.”

The Brooklyn DA says a decision whether or not to return the hemp will be made by the NYPD and the State Department of Agriculture.

“My business is at risk right now,” said Oren Levy, brother to Ronen. “I’m in business to help people and we’re getting hurt because of this. It doesn’t make sense to me, this should have never happened.”
