First cases of CBD shops allowed to reopen, but France remains confused

In Le Havre, in northern France, CBD shop owner Cyrille Bjaoui was acquitted of all charges brought against him in the local criminal court.

Meanwhile, William Lemaire and his partner Julien Lamarre have also been acquitted of all charges and are free to resume runing their shop Organiquement Votre at La Roche-sur-Foron, near Geneva.
