Connie Jackson, the store’s manager, was charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana and possession of hemp without a permit after the discovery. She is 32 years old. Two additional people received tickets for unauthorized hemp possession.

The non-psychoactive chemical cannabidiol (CBD), which is present in marijuana and hemp, is the main focus of Crowntown Cannabis, according to the store’s website. According to South Carolina law, hemp is a type of Cannabis sativa with a negligibly low level of THC, the psychoactive component.
