Tennessee lawmakers have tabled legislation aimed at regulating delta-8 THC products in the state.

House Bill 1927, sponsored by Rep. William Lamberth, R-Portland, would essentially ban the sale or possession of any hemp-derived products containing more than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis.

Delta-8 THC products are currently legal to sell and consume in Tennessee since the compound is produced from hemp, but lawmakers have expressed concerns about the lack of regulations governing it and other cannabinoids in the state.

H.B. 1927 was not heard during an April 27 House floor session and will not likely be revived unless the Senate Finance Committee calls a special session April 28 to discuss it, according to ABC News affiliate News Channel 9.

A Senate spokesperson told the news outlet that if the Senate Finance Committee does not take up the bill Thursday, the legislation will be dead for the year and delta-8 products will continue to be sold in the state as they are now.
