Would-Be Pot Thieves Arrested At Columbia County Hemp Farm

The leaves look like marijuana.

That's why several individuals have been taken into custody after trying to steal what looks like pot from licensed hemp farms in Columbia County. It's a crime to harvest the plants without a license. The suspects could also be charged with theft and trespassing. Hemp plants are actually very low in T-H-C content, but they are very similar in appearance to illegal high-T-H-C cannabis plants. No names of those arrested have been released.
