The NJ Insider article, “NJCBA Comes Out in Full Support of Senator Ruiz’s Legislation to Prohibit the Production or Sale of Delta-8 in New Jersey,” discusses the risk of delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-8), an unregulated and untested cannabis product being sold in convenience stores and gas stations across New Jersey. The New Jersey Cannabusiness Associations’ (NJCBA) leadership recently came out in favor of legislation looking to prohibit the sale of products containing delta-8. The article references NJCBA members who purchased delta-8 branded products across the state and brought them to laboratories for testing. The tests showed the product’s chemical makeup did not match that of the label, and they indicated levels of THC that are not safe for children.
Bill Caruso, Chair of Archer’s Cannabis Law Group and NJCBA General Counsel, was quoted in the article. He stated, “we spent years in New Jersey trying to end stigmas and debunk false narratives around cannabis and cannabis culture. This was all done with the goal of establishing a safe, regulated market in New Jersey. Allowing access to delta-8, particularly among children, completely undercuts that effort. As a father of young children and as a passionate advocate for the cause, I hope every legislator will support this bill.”
