SALEM, Ore. --- Oregon is keeping apart its craft beer and high-grade marijuana, at least for now.
The state agency which regulates alcoholic and recreational marijuana says beer and other alcoholic drinks may not contain either THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, or CBD, the non-psychoactive part that is said to relieve stress and pain.
A spokesman for the agency cited concerns raised by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of potential liver damage from CBD and said the state needed to step in until federal agencies create regulations.
The rule takes effect on January 1st.
