An Anchorage cannabis clinic is reporting that thieves at the Alaska State Fair stole some $10,000 worth of hemp-based edibles and tinctures from its booth, underscoring the risks for businesses displaying pricey CBD merchandise at such venues.
ReLeaf Alaska and the Alaska State Fair announced the theft Tuesday, Anchorage TV station KTUU reported.
ReLeaf helps patients obtain doctors’ recommendations for medical marijuana as well as MMJ cards.
Police say the theft happened in an exhibit hall early Aug. 15, when the fair was closed. A jewelry display and a drone display were also tampered with, police said.
ReLeaf reported CBD oils worth about $10,000 – or up to $220 a bottle – were stolen, Alaska Dispatch News reported.
“They definitely got the high-dollar product for sure,” Lori Brandt of ReLeaf Alaska told KTUU.
Police are investigating.
