In New Jersey, Delta 8 Hemp Sales Ban Advances In Legislature

The bill S-3944 would give hemp regulation to the NJ Cannabis Commission

The NJ Senate Law and Public Safety Committee passed a Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) hemp sales ban sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Teresa Ruiz (D-Essex) and Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) to regulate the market.

This differs from O’Scanlon’s bill S 3470, which Ruiz is also sponsoring. That would have the NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission regulate the Delta-8 hemp market.

“Delta-8 products are being sold all over the state, in gas stations and corner stores, with absolutely no oversight,” said Ruiz. “Despite having psycho-active properties similar to marijuana, it is easily accessible and completely unregulated. This legislation will make it clear that delta-8 has not been tested or endorsed as safe for public consumption.”

Delta Products Regulation

The bill, S-3944, would clarify that modified, converted, or synthetically derived intoxicating THC isomers, and Delta-8 THC counts as THC under the state’s controlled and dangerous substance schedules.

It would be similar to other forms of what the State views as illegal since it is not purchased in a legally licensed store.
