The Maryland Supreme Court last week declined to review a lower court’s injunction against the enforcement of a state law to ban intoxicating hemp products, the Daily Record reports. The decision allows the injunction to remain in place and will allow the sale of the products, such as delta-8 THC and delta-10 THC, to continue.
The lawsuit against the rules was filed in July by the Maryland Hemp Coalition and several hemp farmers and businesses and in October Washington County Circuit Court Judge Brett R. Wilson issued the injunction in an effort to allow the businesses to remain operational while the case made its way through the legal process. In the ruling, Wilson said that the public interest weighs in favor of the cannabis companies because “this case is not about standardizing health and safety regulations but is about the ability of persons to engage in lawful business.”
Maryland officials argued that the unregulated sale of intoxicating cannabinoid products creates a public health risk.
A spokesperson for the Maryland Attorney General said the office is evaluating the Maryland Supreme Court’s decision and considering its next steps. The case will move next to the Maryland Appellate Court.
