Several People Face Criminal Charges For Trying To Steal From Hemp Farms In Columbia County

(Columbia County) It’s not pot, but several people face criminal charges for trying to steal from licensed hemp farms in Columbia County. The leaves look like marijuana and it’s a crime to harvest the plants without a license.  The suspects could also be charged with theft and trespassing.  Hemp plants are actually very low in T-H-C content, but they are very similar in appearance to illegal high-T-H-C cannabis plants.  No names of those arrested have been released.
