Is Delta-8 illegal in Texas? That depends…

When they taught us about it in school, the lesson was that a law came to be only after a bill had been passed by both houses of Congress (or State Legislature).  The bill was then made into law via the Executive’s signature – who could also veto the bill and prevent it from becoming law.

This made sense, they explained, because we voted for these people and so they represented us.

Everyday that tale seems more like a work of fiction.

Instead of a process between separate & independent branches, the executive branch rules increasingly by diktat. Executive branch politicians and high-level bureaucrats that operate within the executive branch both operate by the “stroke of the pen, law of the land” mentality.

What does this have to do with Delta-8??  Glad you asked!

Last week, Texas health officials added Delta-8 THC to their list of controlled subsances.

No new legislation was passed.  All that happened was some bureaucrats belonging to the Texas Department of State and Health Services (DSHS) added a few words to a webpage.

The DSHS is not a law-making entity, and when the Texas legislature had an opportunity to develop laws explicitly making Delta-8 products illegal thereby eliminating the ambiguity surrounding this burgeoning industry, they declined to do so.

The final chapter of this saga will likely be written by the courts. Unfortunately, the  judicial branch of government is about as far from its grade-school definition as its siblings in the legislative & executive.  But that’s another story.

When it comes to deciding what is legal versus what is illegal, the elementary school version would be preferable to the apparent reality.
