July 28, 2021, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Cannabis culture and accessories trade show, Champs, was allegedly raided because a vendor participating in the event unwittingly gave the Las Vegas district attorney an unauthorized product sample.
The following day, social media reports of the feds raiding the venue started cropping up. Various vendors began posting that the officers ordered the attendees to wait outside while they inspected the scene.
The Champs trade show is highly regarded as a decent show to attend if one is looking for “glass,” pipes, bongs, and other smoking accessories. Think of it like a conference center containing an enormous head shop with networking, advocacy, and education thrown in.
Trade Show Raided for Delta-8 THC
As a result of yesterday’s occurrence, plainclothes police officers (“undercovers”) are walking the show floor today while its vendor booths are currently being searched for any Delta-8 THC and similarly prohibited products.
According to TheBlackListxyz’s Instagram page, the scenario unfolded when a vendor gave a prohibited, clandestine sample to the State’s Attorney General unknowingly. Providing samples to the show’s attendees is against the rules. As a result, some vendors were asked to vacate the premises.
