Following the passage of Senate Bill 352, Delta-8 is no longer classified as a restricted drug under North Carolina law. The bill altered the North Carolina Controlled Substances Act to exclude all hemp-derived cannabinoids, including delta-8, from the state's drug laws. Because Delta-8 isn't on the list of restricted narcotics, it's legal to use, possess, sell, distribute, buy, and make it inside state borders. However, neither medicinal cannabis nor recreational marijuana are permitted in North Carolina, making the usage and possession of marijuana-derived delta-8 unlawful. Possession of 0.5 ounces of marijuana or delta-8 produced from marijuana is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $200.
