Less than a month after opening, Tennessee’s first hemp dispensary is in litigation over ownership issues. 

Jason Chambers and Josh Henrick, owners of MidTN Hydroponics & Gardening in Murfreesboro, next door to the new Tennessee Hemp Supply, released a statement Thursday afternoon announcing the situation, and declaring themselves to be the sole owners of the company. 

No names are listed on the business license filed online by the Tennessee Secretary of State. 

They “seek to set the record straight” about “pending legal litigation against a former associate.”

Trinity Mealor was identified in previous reporting, by his own statements, as the owner of Tennessee Hemp Supply

The litigation is against “a former associate that has falsely claimed to be the CEO and owner of our company. This former associate is no longer an employee of Tennessee Hemp Supply, LLC despite incorrect information on social media and the Tennessee Hemp Supply, LLC website.”
