There is a new candy that is spreading across the US and is very popular with the 21 and older crowd, it’s called Chronic Candy. Chronic Candy contains essential hemp oil and is ILLEGAL for Air Force members to ingest. This is not the first product containing Hemp that is marketed towards young adults, Jones Soda offers “Dave” which also contains hemp. Airmen be aware of what you are eating and drinking and the restrictions as outline in the AFI 44-121 below:
“3.5.5. Studies have shown that products made with hemp seed and hemp seed oil may contain varying levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), an active ingredient of marijuana which is detectable under the Air Force Drug Testing Program. In order to ensure military readiness, the ingestion of products containing or products derived from hemp seed or hemp seed oil is prohibited. Failure to comply with the prohibition on the ingestion of products containing or products derived from hemp seed or hemp seed oil is a violation of Article 92, UCMJ.”
Although the above quote is Air Force Specific, it applies to all branches of the military.
