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.
