Vape store clerk charged after NC student overdoses on fake CBD oil

Rashad Naji Mohsen Al Hubaishi (Mooresville Police Department)

A clerk at a vape shop was arrested after investigators say a student at Mooresville High School overdosed using an illegal substance bought at the store.

Rashad Naji Mohsen Al Hubaishi, 31 of Yemen, is charged with nine felony drug counts related to the possession and sale of a Schedule I controlled substance – 5-Fluoro ADB.

Officials say the 5-Fluoro ADB, which is a synthetic cannabinoid, was being falsely sold as “Black Diamond” CBD oil at Tobacco & Vapor on North Main Street. 

Police say a student at Mooresville High overdosed while using the vape in February. There is no word on that student’s name or the extent of their injuries.

During a search of the shop on March 9, detectives seized nine vials of the “Black Diamond” which they say were hidden throughout the store. 

Hubaishi was taken to the Iredell County Jail and placed under a $75,000 secured bond.

No further information has been released.
