Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputies say Lt. Tavoris Allen, who serves at the Hillsborough County Fire and Rescue Station #26 in Plant City, had a “botanical extractor” machine along with two marijuana plants inside the station, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
CBD oil, which has become increasingly popular as a form of medical marijuana, has the benefits of marijuana without the THC high.
Allen was charged with possession of a controlled substance, with cannabis oil cited on his booking report, by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. He paid his $2,000 bail and was released Tuesday morning.
Fire Rescue officials are investigating before deciding on Allen’s future with the department.
