Let’s Talk Delta-8 State Legality: Virginia

Virginia is a tobacco state, so it essentially farm state. What is crazy about Virginia is that it technically was the first medical marijuana state except that it wasn’t widely known because it was hidden in plain view under the Code of Virginia. Of course, there are specific qualifications. But as of 2021, the General Assembly of Virginia made recreational marijuana legal. Dispensaries will begin their operations starting in 2024.  So, do Virginians have access to Delta-8 THC? Yes, the state took the time to revise their state laws to match that of the Federal Farm Bill of 2018. While there are no possession laws, it is vital that you keep your paperwork with you to inform anyone that it is delta-8 rather than Delta-9 THC.

Delta-8 THC is legal in the state of Virginia!
