Rumors of a cannabidiol, or CBD, crackdown by Sarasota police may have been premature. Reportedly the Sarasota Police Department received a half dozen or more complaints of illness from people who used the hemp extract. Police threatened to issue warnings via a letter to stores that sell the product to take it off the shelves within Sarasota city limits.
Now it appears that’s on hold.
“The letter is not completed at this time. It’s unknown when it will be completed,” said SPD spokeswoman Genevieve Judge via email on Tuesday. “We’re working with our state and local partners on this project.”
