SHORT PUMP, Va. — A free marijuana seed giveaway at the CBD Store on Lauderdale Drive in western Henrico was temporarily shutdown early Thursday due to the overwhelming response.

Hundreds of people lined up outside the store in a Short Pump strip mall to get the seeds on what was the first day that growing and possessing small amounts of marijuana was legal in Virginia.

Henrico Police were called to the area to help with crowd control and traffic flow.

Shortly thereafter, store management stopped the giveaway due to the crowd size. Management took down customer names and contact information and started texting people when it was time to return and collect the seeds.

This is a developing story, so anyone with more information can email to send a tip.
