Recently (Summer 2020), The DEA has been punishing companies for the sale of Delta 8 THC. They have been forcing said companies to take down their listings, saying that the sale of Delta 8 is not allowed. This is simply uncalled for, and this is a good example of the Government stepping outside the boundaries of their power. The DEA exists only to enforce existing laws, not create new ones. The sale of Delta 8 THC was made Legal by the 2018 Farm Bill act, meaning that they have no right to try to tell companies what to do pertaining to the sale of Delta 8 THC.

According to the 2018 Farm Bill, all sale of Hemp derivatives, cannabinoids, and isomers is 100% legal. Given that the amount of Delta 9 THC is under 0.3% and that they are naturally extracted. To put this into layman's terms; The sale of Delta 8 THC is 100% legal as long as the amount of traditional THC in the product is under 0.3%. In most cases, this was true, including here at Snapdragon Hemp. Now some people like to ask about the Controlled Substances Act. They ask this simply because Delta 8 THC is listed. However, the 2018 Farm Bill has an amendment to the Controlled Substances Act which makes the sale of D8 THC, once again, Legal. 

This isn't just a legal issue for a lot of people. There are people who rely on this chemical for everyday life. People such as those suffering from crippling anxiety, depression, or even memory loss diseases such as Altzheimers. The DEA has not only stepped outside of their boundaries by deciding to enforce a law that doesn't exist, but they have also stripped people of their lifeline. We won't stand for it.
