This consumer class action concerns deceptive and unfair business practices by Total Life Changes in the advertisement and sale of its raspberry-flavored Iaso® Instant Tea (its “Raspberry Tea”). As set forth in the class action complaint filed against Total Life Changes, it is alleged that Total Life Changes wrongfully and unfairly deceived the public and its customers by misrepresenting that the Raspberry Tea contained “0.0% THC” (tetrahydrocannabinol, a Schedule One controlled substance), when in fact the Tea contains at least 0.875 mg of THC per serving and may contain more.
It is alleged that Total Life Changes advises its customers to drink one serving of the Tea per day. Over a thirty-day period, a customer following these instructions has consumed approximately 26.25 mg of THC—more THC than the customer would have consumed by ingesting two marijuana edibles over the same amount of time.
As a result of Total Life Changes’ alleged deceptive and unfair business practices, customers seeking to purchase lawful hemp-infused products have been tricked into ingesting THC, a federally illegal substance known to have physical and psychoactive effects.
Total Life Changes’ tea products are branded through national marketing and advertising campaigns. Product information and brochures are then distributed to a network of independent consultants, which Total Life Changes calls “Life Changers” who then sell the product to consumers. To become a Life Changer, an individual must pay $49.95 for a “Business Starter Kit.” Total Life Changes offers consumers a thirty-day refund for products purchased directly from its website or from one of its Life Changers.
Plaintiffs bring this class action on behalf of the following national class (the “National Class”):
