“These bills are all bipartisan and we can all be proud that together we’ve taken steps to make life easier for Virginians, make our Commonwealth’s economy more competitive, support law enforcement, protect the most vulnerable among us, increase access to health care, and take necessary steps toward making Virginia’s schools the absolute best in the nation,” Youngkin said in a statement.
Some highlights include measures aimed at reining in the retail sales of products containing psychoactive form of THC, which would prohibit the retail sale of products with psychoactive synthetic delta-8 THC in October but preserve the market for regulated CBD products. It would also create two new misdemeanor penalties for marijuana possession.
We’ll be diving more into some of the important bills soon, but most of them will not go into effect until July 1st. Until then, you can find all of the bills signed by Youngkin here.
