The products can get users high and are easily accessible – even for minors. But testing finds many of the products contain THC that exceeds Indiana’s legal limit.

INDIANAPOLIS — The popularity of Delta-8 is now on display all across central Indiana. 

The substance, which is closely related to marijuana and can cause users to experience a psychoactive high, is now advertised and sold at many gas stations, smoke shops and convenience stores in Indianapolis and the suburbs – in addition to being readily available for sale on the internet.

But unlike marijuana, Indiana currently has no law addressing the possession, sale or manufacture of Delta-8, which means it can be legally sold – even to kids. The state also does not mandate specific testing protocols to ensure Delta-8 products contain legal levels of compounds and chemicals.
