Customs officers are arresting anyone with products containing any THC
As Texas legislators work towards possibly making CBD legal in the state, confiscation of the oil by federal officers has “skyrocketed” this year at DFW Airport, NBC 5 Investigates has learned.
In some cases, passengers have been jailed on felony drug possession charges for a single bottle of CBD. “I would say a year ago it was almost non-existent,” said Cleatus Hunt Jr., port director at the airport for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “But in the last six months, the interception rate for that (CBD) has skyrocketed,” Hunt said in an interview.
Shops that sell CBD, which can contain small amounts of THC, have popped up throughout North Texas, and across the state.
And just this week, members of the Texas House voted in support of making the oil legal — a move that has already taken place in some other states — paving the way for consideration in the Senate.
