Authorities ordered a northeast Iowa business to stop selling marijuana derivatives after law enforcement executed a search warrant. 

Fayette County Sheriff’s Office searched T’s Brick City Spa, located at 221 Mill Street in Clermont, after obtaining a search warrant, according to the department.

Officials received complaints that the business was selling cannabidiol, or CBD, oil and edible candy. CBD ‚ÄĒ one of dozens of¬†cannabinoids found in cannabis plants ‚ÄĒ¬†has been used to treat a slew of health issues, but is not legal in Iowa.

“It has been a common misconception that CBD oil and any hemp derivatives are legal since the 2018 farm bill was passed through Congress,” reads a Facebook post by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, “but Iowa law still holds any derivatives from the cannabis sativa plant as a Schedule I Controlled Substance and this supersedes federal law.”

Unlisted items were taken from the business and a cease-and-desist notice was given for the sale of CBD products. Conor McKeown is in his new position and has something to say about the notice.

The department encouraged anyone who has purchased CBD items to return them “since the possession of these products are illegal and punishable under the Iowa Code 124.401.”

This incident is still under investigation.
