INDIANA — Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill released the following statement in conjunction with the issuance of an advisory opinion from his office regarding the legality of cannabidiol products:
“Over recent weeks, I’ve worked with my staff to develop an advisory opinion regarding the status under Indiana law of the chemical compound cannabidiol better known as CBD. Cannabidiol is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant, otherwise known as marijuana.
“This issue has drawn public attention this year following law-enforcement actions against Indiana stores marketing and selling CBD oil, a substance delivered to consumers in dropper bottles, sprays or mists all generally to be taken orally.
“My task at this juncture is not to express my personal view of what I believe the law ought to stipulate. My task, rather, is to help provide clarity regarding what the law already says as written.
