Delta 8 State Legality New York

New York, home of the friendliest people in the world—I kid. I was raised in upstate, people from New York are often said to be an acquired taste. Not really, things just tend to be more in your face rather than a passive aggressive riddle that you have to decipher. We say something before it becomes a problem. This is how the Compassion Care Act in 2014 passed so that medical marijuana. Then this year, The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) was passed making recreational marijuana legal for the state of New York. I recently came back and there are no dispensaries open but everyone was smoking joints while walking in the city. It was a marvelous sight.  

 So, how does New York feel about Delta-8 THC?

Well, technically delta-8 THC is illegal in the state of New York. However, there are no specific possession laws. What I was very confused about was there were several places that sold delta-8 in NYC. It’s kind of an overlooked thing yet they’re not enforcing any laws. But again, this is still in the early stages so time will tell with the future of delta-8 THC in New York.

Delta-8 THC is illegal in the state of New York.
