Lawsuit alleges discrimination in “Candy Crush” sting

A lawsuit says authorities targeted Tennessee stores with owners of Egyptian heritage in the “Operation Candy Crush” sting focusing on candy and other products containing cannabidiol. In February, 23 Rutherford County stores were padlocked and 21 people were indicted in connection with selling products infused with illegal controlled substances. All charges were later dropped when investigators couldn’t determine if the cannabidiol was derived from marijuana or hemp.
