Sheriff wants more study on CBD before changing impairment laws

Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski recommends lawmakers study further the potential impacts from hemp-based products before changing laws on impairment.  Lawmakers are considering a bill that would prevent drivers who have consumed a product made with trace amounts of THC, such as the marijuana and hemp derivative Cannabidiol or CBD, from being charged with operating while intoxicated.  Sheriff Joski would like the full impacts of CBD consumption to be known to ensure public safety.



CBD made from hemp plants is non-addictive and is being sold over the counter in Wisconsin for medicinal uses.
