Potential Total THC Ban From SB237 For Louisiana

Potential Total THC Ban From SB237 For Louisiana

At Ethereal Gold Dispensary, we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality, federally legal THC products. However, we regret to inform you that due to new legislation in Louisiana, specifically SB237, consumers may soon have difficulty finding any federally legal THC products within the state.

SB237 Total THC Ban

Louisiana's stringent state laws have always posed challenges for the sale of THC products. With the introduction of SB237, all forms of THC in any product will be banned. This legislation enforces a zero-tolerance policy on THC content, making it impossible for stores in the state to continue selling these items — including almost all CBD products — to customers in Louisiana.

The Louisiana House Administration of Criminal Justice recently passed a bill that would ban consumable hemp products, including popular THC seltzers and gummies. This decision follows concerns raised by lawmakers and conservative groups about the potential effects of THC products. The new law aims to eliminate the current allowance of 0.3% THC in consumable hemp products, effectively wiping out the legal consumable hemp industry in Louisiana.

The Louisiana Industry Speaks Out

Several business owners and industry leaders have voiced their opposition to the bill, highlighting the devastating impact it will have on local businesses and jobs. Despite efforts to amend the bill and exempt certain products like THC spirits, the measure continues to gain support among lawmakers.

If SB237 is signed into law, it will mean the end of THC product sales in Louisiana, forcing consumers to seek these products from other states. While we hope for a compromise that allows continued access products, we must prepare for the possibility of these new restrictions.

We understand how disappointing this news may be for many consumers in Louisiana. We remain committed to serving you and will continue to provide updates as the situation develops. Thank you for your understanding and continued support. For the time being enjoy an extra 10% off your order when you use the mode MAY24BLOG at checkout. Stay safe out there friends!
