Law enforcement seizes CBD oil products from Rapid City business | Local


Following an investigation into the THC content of CBD products being sold by the Staple & Spice Market, local law enforcement has seized a number of products from the downtown Rapid City business, according to the Rapid City Police Department.

The removal of the products comes just weeks after Pennington County State’s Attorney Mark Vargo said he would not prosecute those who purchased or sold hemp-derived CBD oil products. Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, however, has said that all CBD oil products are illegal in South Dakota.

“We recognize confusion exists regarding CBD products,” Rapid City Police Chief Karl Jegeris said in the press release. “However, we have the responsibility to take enforcement action regarding illegal drug distribution in our community, including products that contain THC.”

No arrests have been made in connection with the case, which will be forwarded to the Pennington County States Attorney’s Office for review, according to the news release.

Ozzy Osbourne Recovering From Injuries With CBD Oil


After years of addiction and abuse, there’s a lot on the line for Ozzy Osbourne.

The singer has suffered multiple injuries and sicknesses over the past year, from the flu to pneumonia to a terrible fall at home that dislodged several metal rods within his body. Now as Ozzy works to recover, some have expressed worry about the possibility of a pain killer addiction as he tries to overcome his injuries.

According to Sharon Osbourne, The Prince Of Darkness has managed to side-step that by introducing CBD Oil into his life. During an interview with Loose Women, Sharon says that Ozzy is in terrible pain but he has found the cannabis extract to be helping him through it. “He’s off all of that. He had to have it after he was operated on the last time. But now for pain, he has that CBD, whatever that stuff is” she says of Ozzy’s new treatment. “He’s dealing with it that way.”

The natural pain reliever has become increasingly popular for a variety of reasons, with some experts saying to could help combat the opioid epidemic. For Ozzy, it’s a new approach to get past the injuries that have forced him to cancel several dates this year.

Sharon explains that Ozzy is still in a lot of pain, but a lot of it comes from being forced to the sidelines. “Terrible pain, and his pain is he’s not good at being at home” she adds. “He wants to be back on the road, back on his tour, back with his band, and he’s pining. Really the challenge is not his injuries, it’s his state of mind to keep him positive and working.”

Earlier this year, Ozzy’s guitarist Zakk Wylde explained to RADIO.COM that Osbourne remains in good spirits, and that they already have plans set to start things back up in 2020. “I guess with mom over there, with Mrs. O, she’s already scheduled dates already for 2020” said Zakk. “We glue him back together and then he wants to get back out again. That’s the game plan right now.”

Ozzy Osbourne turned 70 in December.

Grandmother jailed for carrying CBD oil at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport


Lena Bartula, 71, was en route to visit her granddaughter in Oregon when she was arrested at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport after police officers found CBD oil in her travel bag. Bartula told NBC that she was then driven to the airport jail, where she “slept on the floor, my head next to the toilet.”

The next day, her arms and legs were shackled and she was moved to Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth for another night before being slapped with a felony drug charge. Hemp-made CBD was legalized in December with the federal farm bill, but customs officials argue that the law is still in the process of being implemented, so for now, products with THC are still illegal at ports of entry.

Bartula, however, was totally unaware of this restriction. Originally from Fort Worth, Bartula now lives in Mexico and works as an artist, running a popular art gallery. She uses CBD oil because it gives her relief from her aches and pains.

Luckily, her case was dropped after a grand jury hearing, but this is probably the last time she’ll be traveling with CBD oil.

CBD store owner says bank account closed over products sold


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) Local businesses that sell CBD products say they are having issues getting financial institutions to work with them. 

One of those businesses is Beyond Full Spectrum. 

Beyond Full Spectrum recently opened their second location in Whitefish Bay. Their first is in Waukesha. That location opened in December. 

“We went to a credit union, Summit Credit Union, which was highly recommended by all the credit unions,” said owner Aleksander Gerasyuta, “We applied for the account, the account got approved, and I wanted to make sure that the account could stay active because everything, all the financials we rerunning through that account. We were given basically a promise that the account would stay active no matter what.”

But earlier this month, Gerasyuta said they received a phone call, and a few weeks later a letter, saying in part that their account was opened in error and that Summit Credit Union “does not offer accounts to anyone whose primary business involves marijuana, industrialized hemp, CBD oil, etc.”

“The first thought was, this must be joke, and unfortunately it was not,” Gerasyuta said. 

In a statement, Summit Credit Union CEO and President Kim Sponem said:
