The owners of 17 businesses that were closed during “Operation Candy Crush” have filed a federal lawsuit, The Daily News Journal reports. “Candy Crush” targeted stores for illegally selling CBD-based products. Charges in the case were eventually dropped, as CBD products are legal in Tennessee. The lawsuit, which names the town of Smyrna, Rutherford County and a host of local officials, claims that those executing the raids were intentionally preying on small businesses and expected them to take a plea in order to reopen their businesses.
