“Dear PoPville,

What do you know about the raid at Capitol Hemp in Adams Morgan last night? I was walking on Adams Mill around 7pm last night when I saw about 15 cops in bulletproof vests. I later saw the cops pulling people out of the store in handcuffs. At one point there was a helicopter flying above with the spotlight on the back of the store. The word on the street was that it was a drug raid of sorts… Do you know anything more about this?”

Capitol Hemp’s Adams Morgan location is located at 1802 Adams Mill Rd, NW. Their Web site says:

“Capitol Hemp is proud offer unique clothing and accessories for women and men made from earth’s greatest natural fiber, industrial hemp.

In addition to clothing, Capitol Hemp offers a wide variety of products made from hemp including soaps, lotions, paper, non-dairy milk, shoes, original works of art, and much much more.

Capitol Hemp also sells orignal works of art by local numerous artists as well as hand blown glass tobacco pipes and vaporizers. If you would like to view photographs of these products, please click here to certify that you are at least 18 years old.”

I have confirmed that an arrest was made but I’m trying to get more details of what actually happened. I’m told that the investigation is ongoing so very little info is available at the moment.
