The New York Police Department confiscated a 106-pound shipment of marijuana due to a tip from a concerned FexEx driver, according to a report by the New York Post.
The recipient of the shipment, the owner of a company, shared in the report that the shipment contained legal CBD and that he has the documentation as proof. Oren Levy, of GreenAngels CBD, a wholesale hemp seller, shared in the report that the FedEx driver reported the shipment to the 75th Precinct whose cops arrived and determined that the shipment was illegal.
Even though authorities confiscated the shipment, they later contacted GreenAngels CBD to pick up the shipment. Apparently, the call was not really to pick up the shipment, but to arrest the individual, Levy’s brother Ronen, who came to pick up the shipment.
Levy posted on the GreenAngels CBD Instagram page, stating that his brother was falsely arrested and all of the confiscated bags were hemp. Each box contained the documentation.

Andrew Subin, an attorney for the farm that sold the hemp to Levy, shared in the report that they have a certified lab test, even though authorities claim they need to do their own test. He further stated that there are no grounds to hold the product. The product is under the 0.3% legal limit.
