Help Amend SB 591!
PASSED April 15, 2023
SB 591 was initially intended to crack down on intoxicating compounds masquerading as hemp. Unfortunately, the Governor’s substituted version adds a 21-or-older age restriction for non-intoxicating hemp extracts that contain any amount THC. Age restrictions such as this send an inaccurate and inappropriate message to consumers: that these safe health and wellness products are dangerous or should be associated with a vice of some sort.
