The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene this week announced a ban and resulting crackdown on CBD-infused foods and beverages throughout the city, NBC News reports.
In a statement, the Health Department confirmed that CBD food and drinks are no longer allowed to be sold in the city:
“Restaurants in New York City are not permitted to add anything to food or drink that is not approved as safe to eat. The Health Department takes seriously its responsibility to protect New Yorkers’ health. Until cannabidiol (CBD) is deemed safe as a food additive, the Department is ordering restaurants not to offer products containing CBD.” — New York City Health Department statement, via NBC News
