Texas Delta THC Laws

Marijuana News” Round Two Won in Texas Supreme Court: Delta-THC Still Legal in Lonestar State

In Texas, the fight to keep Delta-THC products legal has been heating up since October. That is when the first ban on Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC vapes and edibles went into effect.  However, advocates including Delta-THC manufactures and hemp producers in Texas have been fighting it out in Supreme Court.

The Texas health authorities want a permanent ban on Delta-THC.  They claim that it is not legal, because the semi-synthetic THC products exceed the maximum 0.30% limit to be considered hemp.  But advocates of Delta-THC products disagree with the language of both the federal and state hemp laws.

Whether Delta-THC products will remain legal in Texas remains to be seen.  The fight in court and appeals will continue in January 2022.  Will Texans lose the right to choose Delta-THC as an alternative to the maximum 1% THC medical cannabis available to patients?
