Johnson County DA sends warning to businesses to stop selling delta-8 THC products

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said his office has begun issuing warnings to local businesses, CBD stores and vape shots that they can no longer sell products that contain a compound known as delta-8. Such products are sold commercially and are derived from hemp, but questions about the legality of their sales have arisen in Kansas and other states due to the amount of THC in them.

Enforcement of Kansas cannabis laws got more real Tuesday for Johnson County businesses that have been selling a less potent-THC product considered legal in Missouri.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced that the various wellness, CBD and vape shops that have been selling products containing delta-8 THC have until March 20 to remove it from their shelves or face possible criminal proceedings.
