Vermont physicians fight to keep THC caps in place
A coalition of physicians in Vermont is pushing back on a recent recommendation sent to the legislature from from the Vermont Cannabis Control Board to lift the THC caps on cannabis concentrates. The coalition says that they were successful in convincing legislators to keep the caps during the last legislative session. They believe that the 60% THC potency cap on cannabis concentrates is playing an important role in protecting public health. Vermont started recreational cannabis sales on October 1st, 2022 and the physicians are calling it too “premature” to re-open this debate at this time. Rather than cap concentrates based on THC levels regulators think that creating public awareness campaigns could better help consumers understand high dose products would be a better outcome.
