Class Action Lawsuit Claims Tea Contains An Unspecified Amount Of THC
According to a class action lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Georgia, Total Life Changes Raspberry Lemonade Flavor Instant IASO Tea may contain an alarming amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, marijuana’s psychoactive component.
Lead Plaintiff Ashley Miller, a staff sergeant in the United States Army, seeks to represent fellow customers who were tricked into thinking they were purchasing a THC-free version of IASO tea from Total Life Changes, LLC. She believes that in addition to providing an undesirable psychoactive element to consumers, the product may result in other negative repercussions, such as but not limited to a failed drug test.
Interestingly, Miller states that a Total Life employee, her friend’s sister, informed her that the Raspberry Lemonade Flavor Instant IASO Tea does not include THC. However, the plaintiff claims that she failed a random drug test at work after drinking the tea.
She claims her employment was halted pending the outcome of the failed drug test investigation. As a result, she states that she now faces various outcomes, including a demotion or “other than honorable” dismissal from the Army.
Miller claims she was also obliged to undergo substance abuse training and is currently restricted from receiving promotions, honors, and benefits as a military member pending the Army’s investigation.
Additionally, due to the failed drug test, Miller asserts that she was denied a rank promotion that would have provided her a higher basic salary.
Tea Not Made From Hemp As Promised
After learning that she failed the drug test, Miller went to an independent laboratory to have the tea evaluated. The lab result shows that the tea was most likely not made from hemp as claimed, but rather from THC and CBD-containing crops.
Total Life Changes is a network marketing organization that offers:
- nutritional supplements
- essential oils
- skincare items
According to Miller, the company has been cited by regulatory bodies for making misleading claims about COVID-19 treatments and fails to identify the products appropriately.
Ashley Miller v. Total Life Changes LLC
As per the company’s website, the Raspberry Lemonade Flavor Instant IASO Tea is manufactured from hemp extract that does not contain THC certified by the lab. Additionally, the Total Life Changes Tea Class Action Lawsuit 2021 states that Raspberry Lemonade Tea is labeled as containing “0.0% THC.” Moreover, the plaintiff contends that the THC content of other teas is listed on the packaging and the company’s website.
The plaintiff suggests that she is not the only customer who has suffered unemployment or other serious repercussions as a result of the mislabeled Total Life Changes Raspberry Lemonade Flavor Instant IASO Tea.
In addition, the Better Business Bureau has received complaints from customers. Total Life Changes also faces legal action, including a lawsuit complaint filed by a male parolee alleging he faced imprisonment due to a failed drug test following his Total Life Changes detox tea consumption.
Miller wishes to represent other customers from Georgia who have purchased Total Life Changes Raspberry Lemonade Flavor Instant IASO Tea in the last six years. She is suing for damages as well as a decree prohibiting the company from engaging in alleged tea mismarketing.
