Legal Standing: Ads for CBD oil are mailable

Legal Standing: Tonda Rush

Jan 1, 2020

Gentle Reader,

Can you stand one more column about cannabis ads? The guidance on mailing advertising for such products through USPS is becoming clearer, and I want to revisit this topic once more. 

First, while it is evident that the country is moving toward legalization of marijuana and related products, cannabis remains a controlled substance under federal law. There are fines and potential jail sentences attached to violations of the federal law. Thus, the U.S. Postal Service is compelled to follow the federal law and newspapers using the mail must, as well. Given the penalties, it is worth being careful.
