TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana retailers have 60 days to remove any products from their shelves that contain CBD oil. That’s a directive from Governor Eric Holcomb, who stopped in Terre Haute at Indiana State University on Tuesday.

He spoke at a luncheon put on by the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce.

 

 

The main topic of his question and answer session with Chamber President David Haynes focused on his efforts to boost the state’s workforce development.

Following his talk, we asked him about the future of CBD oil use in Indiana.

“We’ll make sure CBD oil is available for those who are qualified to purchase and receive it,” Gov. Holcomb said. “We want to be absolutely sure that THC is not in those products.”

THC is the drug found in marijuana. Holcomb reiterated his position that he does not want marijuana legalized in Indiana.

However last spring, Governor Holcomb signed a bill into law allowing for the use of CBD oil to help treat epilepsy. Last week, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill determined having or selling CBD oil in the state is illegal. Over the next 60 days, excise police will educate and warn, even issue citations when necessary, that these products must be removed.

Meanwhile, Holcomb says 60 days should be enough time for lawmakers to clarify existing laws as to protect CBD oil’s legitimate use.

“And they’ve already taken the initiative,” the governor said. “They’ve already expressed that they plan to do that.”

“I want Hoosiers to know, and there should be no confusion, if you are currently on those lists and you’re able to purchase CBD oil, you still can.”

When we asked Governor Holcomb if he would support legislation that would help clarify CBD oil use in Indiana, he answered, “absolutely.”
