On Thursday the House Rules Committee passed a good bill prohibiting Delta-8 THC in Arkansas.
S.B. 358 is a good bill by Sen. Tyler Dees (R – Siloam Springs) and Rep. Jimmy Gazaway (R – Paragould) that prevents Delta-8 THC from being manufactured via industrial hemp in Arkansas.
The bill would place Delta-8, Delta-9, Delta-10 THC, and other psychoactive drugs made from industrial hemp on the list of controlled substances in state law.
S.B. 358 also contains language enacting drug restrictions that would take effect if a state or federal court someday blocked Arkansas from prohibiting Delta-8 altogether.
Delta-8 THC is a mind-altering substance made from cannabis, and Arkansas law does not adequately prohibit it.
S.B. 358 is a good bill that will clarify Arkansas’ drug laws and helps provide protections against dangerous marijuana products.
The bill now goes to the entire Arkansas House of Representatives for consideration.
