The Board of Commissioners will consider a resolution, 2022-148, which would regulate where CBD oil or hemp extracts “with federally-defined THC levels for hemp” can be sold.
According to the proposed resolution, “the County finds that is in the best interest of the citizens of Clayton County that these standards are set forth with specificity to reduce or eliminate any adverse impact of these changes on the surrounding properties.”
However, nothing in the agenda packet indicates where these zoning districts might be.
The resolution would apply to “drug products in finished dosage formulation in its original container that have been approved by and labeled in compliance with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that contains cannabidiol (CBD) derived from cannabis and contains no more than 0.1 percent (w/w) residual tetrahydrocannabinol.”
It does not apply to marijuana. The sale or possession of marijuana in green leaf or bud form is a misdemeanor. Selling less than 10 pounds of marijuana in Georgia is a felony that carries a one- to 10-year sentence.
