      Gregory’s bill would task the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services with regulating these products, as the agency currently does for the state’s marijuana program. And the products would have to be sold at DHSS-licensed dispensaries.

“The reason I’m doing this right now is there’s currently no age limits on it,” Gregory said. “I feel like this is operating under a loophole right now.”

During the Tuesday hearing, a number of people—from delta-8 businesses and law enforcement to the American Academy of Pediatrics and lawmakers—agreed that there needs to be age restrictions and regulations in product labeling and testing.

But both Republican and Democratic lawmakers pushed back on the idea of forcing the industry under the umbrella of DHSS, saying that would allow the “marijuana monopoly” to take over this market given the limited number of licenses for dispensaries available.

Rep. Ben Baker (R) talked about a business owner who went through the expensive medical-marijuana license application and was denied. Now he’s selling hemp-derived THC products.

“The ones behind the initial rollout of the medical marijuana weren’t greedy enough,” Baker said, “and now they’re coming after the businesses that made the best of it.”

The marijuana instantly became big business in Missouri after voters passed a constitutional amendment allowing medical marijuana in 2018. Competition for licenses became fierce when the state capped the number of applications it would approve, initially issuing 338 licenses to sell, grow and process marijuana—the minimum required in the constitution. #missouri #stlouis #kansascity #jeffersoncity #missouricannabis #delta8
      A security plan utilizing the minimum technology and operational procedures to meet compliance requirements with regulations should not be mistaken as a security plan designed to protect the people and property within a cannabis facility. No single state’s security requirements meet the physical protection standards utilized by every type of business. Most state requirements include antiquated and misunderstood elements for security compliance or fail to address many areas entirely.

Tim Sutton has 35+ years of security experience. His expertise includes operational security management and program development, loss prevention, physical security and risk assessments, and technical security systems design and implementation. He was director of security at Grassroots and Revolution Enterprises, two IL-based MSOs with operations in several states. Tim also chairs the committee for the currently under development ASIS/ANSI Cannabis Security Standard expected to publish Q4 2023. #mississippi #horticulture #cannabisindustry #jacksonms #jacksonmississippi

      It has happened – medical cannabis is legally available to patients in Mississippi. As this market continues to grow and mature, setting an example for the region, the rules and regulations will also evolve.
