Pa. Reverses on Allowing Beer & Wine Stores to Sell CBD Products
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is reversing decisions from last year and says it won't allow beer and wine licensees to sell edible products containing the marijuana extract cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is a non-intoxicating chemical compound, one of many chemicals found in cannabis. Marketers say CBD can treat a range of ailments.
The Associated Press reports the March 23 decision to rescind approval was made at the request of the state Department of Agriculture. A board spokesperson says the department told the liquor board that the sale of such consumable products is illegal in Pennsylvania.
