The delta-8 THC is one of the top-selling pharmaceutical drugs on the American market. It belongs to schedule II of the Controlled Substances List, meaning it has an eminent potential for misuse and abuse. Its side effects include drowsiness, impaired driving, disorientation, slurred speech, and, in severe cases, hallucinations. This drug is most often purchased by those wishing to smoke marijuana or ingest heroin. However, the potential legal issues it poses with regard to the possession, purchase, and/or use of medical marijuana in many jurisdictions make this a "hot" topic among many advocates of medical marijuana.
