Republican State Representative Kurtis Gregory from Marshall, Missouri, has introduced a bill to regulate the sale of delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products. The products, which are used to give people a high, are derived from hemp and are legal under federal law. While some stores and vendors have imposed age restrictions of 21 and up, there is no state or federal regulation of these products. Gregory’s bill would task the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services with regulating these products and require the products to be sold at DHSS-licensed dispensaries. While critics worry that regulating the industry under the umbrella of DHSS would create a “marijuana monopoly”, Gregory’s bill is gaining support from many quarters, including delta-8 businesses, law enforcement, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The bill itself locks down “any intoxicating” cannaboid and makes it so it’s ONLY able to be sold in Cannabis Dispensaries. This will harm the Hemp Industry for sure. If you notice, dispensaries are already selling “Hemp” products as well, high in THC-A but low in THC 9 – the regulated content. You maybe just buying all your hemp products at the Missouri regulated shops in this case.

Amendment 3 to make Marijuana Recreational is on the ballot. Sadly many will see it as a great thing and “Making Cannabis legal” it does NOT do such a thing. It really just shuffles prohibition around so adults can “legally” carry more. No protections if you get up and drive the next day or month! The THC will still be in your blood when you get in an accident, and it will go towards you – even if not your fault. No considerations of that are taken in.
This regulation really only goes to assist in the moving the Cannabis profits to a system they can try and regulate.
Expunging past offenses get us NO WHERE as it only moves your offenses to a system “physically and electronically segregated“!
Costs on cannabis go up, taxed to add 6% more and another 3% if the locality it’s in wants in too.
Punishment for having this SAFE plant get added – it is safe as FOOD, in fact, is a superfood! Even though maybe medical necessary and is safe penalties get ADDED! – “Purposefully possessing amounts in excess of twice the legal limit shall be punishable by imprisonment of up to one year and a fine of up to two thousand dollars as an infraction under applicable law.”
Another makes a fine for making concentrate in your home! What if this is medically needed? You’ll have to not DIY and take it commercial instead! “$1000 FINE FOR PRODUCING CONCENTRATES IN YOUR HOME“
This isn’t real legalization, its a total shift for the dispensary business and NOT in favor of the cannabis consumer. A Fellow advocate breaks it down much better detail and links to the details of the law he made for the state. We need to free cannabis, restore it back to the time before 1937 when it was a free commodity.
Chemistry World: Handheld device weeds out cannabis from hemp | Research.
I know from efforts in my community that Cannabis can be checked with a Spectrometer. It appears now we’ve got a
hand held portable
Raman spectrometer that can check your Cannabis for THC now. It used to be a big machine that could do it in a lab. Now you can bring it with you!
I think this is a good thing for the part that we’ve had so many people trying to move cannabis CBD/Hemp products and getting nailed and detained as they can’t figure out it’s not ‘Marijuana’ (0.03< THC really only difference). They are both a superfood and amazing for you. If the feds will allow the ‘Hemp’ variety the be used while we’re sorting the medical laws we should be able to access it. Hopefully this helps that plight.
“CBD and its salts… do not have a significant potential for abuse and could be removed from the [Controlled Substances Act],” the FDA wrote to the DEA in May…
The fight goes on as the FDA says CBD isn’t even eligible to be controlled, but it’s ‘supposed to be’ with UN agreements. We’ll see how quick this goes.
It is quite true though as Cannabis Sativa is safe, it’s not addictive and it’s safe as daily food, as it is food!

Vicente Fox Former President of Mexico
Former President Fox of Mexico has done a bit of support for Cannabis in the past. Now he is also proposing to add Cannabis to NAFTA. Sounds like a great idea to me. Not only for cannabis freedom but to also tear down the black market profits and make the non-criminal be able to avoid becoming such.
This would throw a great wrench into the Cartels plans to make money.
