Prosecutor drops CBD charges in Scottsbluff, calls state law 'poorly worded'

By Alia Conley / World-Herald staff writer 13 hrs ago

The Scottsbluff mother and son who were arrested a day after their CBD store opened no longer face criminal charges.

Heather Kaufman Beguin, who turns 46 on Tuesday, and Dreyson Beguin, 23, were each charged in mid-December with one count of possession of a controlled substance.

Scotts Bluff County Attorney David Eubanks said he filed paperwork Monday to dismiss the charges, citing various reasons.

The Nebraska Legislature, he said, needs to clarify the law. He agrees with other county attorneys in the state that other crimes are a higher priority than this one. And he said it would be hard to get a guilty verdict from a jury because an increasing number of people support medical marijuana.

“The statute is poorly worded, it’s out of date and the Legislature needs to change it,” Eubanks said.
