According to a report from the city manager, three out of eight products seized in the raid tested over Georgia’s limit for THC levels.

The shop’s owners say all those products are sold in other smoke shops around metro Atlanta and the manufacturer should be paying the price instead of them.

Channel 2′s Michael Doudna spoke with the owners’ attorney, Tom Church, at South Fulton City Hall

“You have to prove that these people know that they sold something that was illegal. More importantly, these products, we have thousands of lab tests,” Church said. “For each product that was sold in that store, we have a lab result showing that this was a legal product that had under the legal limit of THC.”

The South Fulton City Council voted to revoke the business’ license Tuesday night.

The owners say they will fight the decision in court.
