The DEA’s confusion over hemp laws in Texas led to the imprisonment of a truck driver transporting legal hemp. Daniel Mehler aka “The Dopest Lawyer in Town” is representing the driver who was put in jail. The case is now a Trending News story on Twitter.
The Texas Tribune’s tweet about it has 1,750 people retweeting and commenting. That number will continue to grow as this case highlights law enforcement’s lack of understanding the difference between hemp and marijuana.
