Minnesota-based Target offered online customers a chance to buy non-psychoactive hemp-derivative pills and oils on its website — for about a week.
But the offer is now gone.

The cannabis oils and pills, which go by the brand-name Charlotte’s Web, do not get users high. Users say it is helpful in treating seizures and other ailments.
Although some medical marijuana advocates celebrated the appearance of Charlotte’s Web products on Target’s website, the product was quickly made unavailable.

“We started carrying Charlotte’s Web hemp extract items last week on Target.com. After further review, we have decided to remove it from our assortment,” said Kate Decker, a Target spokeswoman.
Minnesota state law allows registered users who suffer from certain ailments to obtain medical marijuana, despite federal laws banning the drug. Many other states do not allow their residents use of marijuana without fear of state penalty.
