Aspiring police officers in Arizona may soon be cleared to enter law enforcement circles if they use or test positive for CBD (cannabidiol).
CBD is the active ingredient in cannabis known for its soothing qualities.
Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not psychoactive so it does not get a person high.
CBD products containing more than .3 percent THC that were purchased at a dispensary would not fall under the exemption.
The Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board or AZ POST will continue to prohibit medical marijuana products above that threshold.
