Three local groups are co-sponsoring an informational forum on Delta 8 THC, a cannabinoid that’s gaining popularity in Wisconsin.
McFarland RADAR Coalition, Monona Cares and Cottage Grove Cares Coalition will host a virtual forum on Monday, Nov. 15 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Police officer and drug recognition expert Nick Place will discuss Delta 8 THC, a newer thc product that’s rising in Wisconsin. Place will discuss how Delta 8 is legal, what products are available, a lack of info on product packaging, drug testing related to Delta 8, and other topics.
A release from these three groups says that research still needs to be done on Delta 8 THC’s long term impacts on both adults and teenagers. It also currently is not federally-regulated, and locally is accessible.
McFarland RADAR Coalition, Cottage Grove Cares and Monona Cares Coalitions “believes it is important to bring awareness to parents and caregivers of our community on Delta 8 THC. Informing parents regarding products such as Delta 8 in order for parents to have the ability to have a conversation with their children about the impact this could have on their lives,” the release said.
