Colorado company says federal judge’s ruling proves truck seized in Idaho was full of hemp

When Idaho State Police seized a truck hauling about 7,000 pounds of bags filled with a green, leafy substance in late January, they put out a press release saying that the contents were marijuana — though the driver insisted that it was industrial hemp. As a lawsuit filed by Big Sky Scientific LLC, the owner of the cargo, works its way through court, Big Sky says that a judge’s ruling against the company last week actually proves its point that the substance is hemp. Idaho State Police sent the THC-containing substance to a lab for tests, but last week declined to release the results to the Statesman because of an ongoing investigation.
