Police raiding Plymouth shop for CBD oil – updates

Police are carrying out a raid at a vape shop in Devonport which sells CBD oil.

Ashley Cole, owner of Vaping Is Personal Plymouth, says that five officers are in his shop “seizing all products which are CBD related”.

Mr Cole says he feels “victimised” and insists that “everything [in his shop] is completely legal”.

Mr Cole said that officers turned up at 10am this morning with a warrant to seize products, which he claims are also sold in Holland and Barrett.

Shortly after 11am, officers remained at the premises.

Mr Cole said: “They are seizing everything that is CBD related.

“They are all completely lawful. We have all the correct documentation and lab reports. We’ve offered them samples which they’ve declined. It’s ridiculous.”

Mr Cole said that products such as CBD oil and CBD teabags are being seized.
