During A Meth/Fentanyl Epidemic, SC Gears Up To Combat Δ8

Hot on the heels of the Kentucky raids targeting delta 8 products, South Carolina AG Alan Wilson issued a letter of guidance suggesting that Congress did not likely legalize Delta 8 THC in the Farm Bill law. This action potentially affords special operations to commence against gas stations across the Palmetto state – and possible stop and test procedures for citizens suspected of vaping the illicit substance.

Methamphetamine deaths continue to rise across the United States though not outpacing those caused by Fentanyl. South Carolina, strategically situated between Charlotte and Atlanta, continues to be impacted by illicit drug trafficking.

Ultimately, South Carolina residents shouldn’t have to rely on these types of deadly crime operations for their medical marijuana. Those operations could quickly be shut out of competition if our state adopted a well regulated medical cannabis program. Considering the toxic effects of PGRs on illicit cannabis, and the high cost of life, how ethical is the absence of a regulated market for medical marijuana?

South Carolina Elected officials are not smart enough to solve the problem. I saw this crap everyday during my extremely long EMS career in the Upstate. I’ve begged, pleaded and argued with law makers to do something. All politicians are good for is blowing crack smoke up citizens ass’s so they get your vote. Move to another state. I did after 41yrs in Greenville. When children are smarter than the elected officials and we adults continue to elect the idiots the cycle will continue.

And murder is at an all time high in South Carolina along with violent crime. There are so many areas where law enforcement would be better of soending limited resources. It makes no sense to go after hard working citizens for something that has been sold for a year or more. Just senseless. This along with many others is reason to get rid of the Governor and the AG next year. Time for new leadership in this God forsaken state.
