Chaffetz attorney calls FEC complaint claims 'false and misleading'

ALT LAKE CITY — A lawyer for Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Friday the Utah Republican's primary opponent, Chia-Chi Teng, made "demonstrably false and misleading" claims in a request for a Federal Election Commission investigation.

Chaffetz said CBD oil — a marijuana extract low in THC, the chemical that causes the "high" in marijuana — has been used to successfully treat epilepsy, cancer and other illnesses.

"Patients who qualify to receive treatment should not have to fear prosecution by the federal government," Chaffetz said in a statement. "States have taken the lead on this issue, and the federal government should follow."
