Aspiring police officers in Arizona may soon be cleared to enter law enforcement circles if they use or test positive for CBD (cannabidiol).
Â 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.
