Help Fight Overly Restrictive Age Limits on Consumable Hemp Products

HSB 665 and SSB 3159 would restrict consumable hemp products to persons 21 or older, prohibit alcoholic beverages from containing THC, and impose a registration requirement for consumable hemp product retailers. The Iowa Department of Health and Human Services would be authorized to establish labeling and packaging rules, total THC potency limits, and other sale or distribution restrictions. Likewise, HF 2605 and SF 2352 would also prohibit the sale of consumable hemp products to persons under 21.

All four bills could be improved by amendments:

  1. The 21-or-older age restriction should not apply to non-intoxicating hemp products.
  2. The total THC potency limits should be set through a public process that relies on scientific data and allows input from hemp industry stakeholders.
  3. Alcoholic beverages should be able to contain CBD, which is technically an isomer of THC, because they are already restricted from minors and others under 21.
