Indiana has uniquely positioned itself with some of the most robust regulations of hemp-derived CBD products. Exciting news, right? Indiana is a red state that has been slow to implement any kind of meaningful cannabis regulations. Prior to SB 52, Indiana implemented a strict CBD-only medical marijuana program and an industrial hemp program that has not really launched.
It shows that Indiana is cognizant of the existence of CBD products and has made a decision to allow their sale. The catch is that those sales are restricted to a certain class of CBD products, and they are heavily regulated. Assuming these products clear testing, the sellers of low THC hemp products must distribute them in packaging that includes the following:. D expiration date, which must be not more than two years from the date of manufacture;.
H download link for a certificate of analysis for the low THC hemp extract. This will likely lead to some CBD distributors deciding not to sell products in Indiana. Indiana is unique in the sense that it allows CBD and also regulates its sale so robustly.

The number holder NH died while domiciled in Indiana, so we will consider the Indiana law to determine if the claimant was validly married to the NH for the requisite 10 years before her divorce. However, parties to a voidable underage marriage may ratify the marriage, thus making the marriage not voidable, by remaining in the marriage a sufficient amount of time after the parties reach the age of consent.
We believe that the NH and Claimant ratified their marriage well prior to the divorce proceedings, and the divorce was indeed a divorce proceeding and not an annulment proceeding. We conclude that the NH and the Claimant had a valid marriage that lasted for at least 10 years and ended in divorce. When evaluating the validity of the marriage, we look to the law of the state where the insured had a permanent home when he died.
It appears that the insured in this case died in Indiana, so we will consider Indiana law to determine if the claimant was validly married for the requisite 10 years before her divorce. See Demoss v.
Indiana Telemedicine Policy, Simplified.
In short, it continues to be legal, under most circumstances, for adults to engage in sexual intercourse with individuals at least 16 years old, but an adult who sends a sexually explicit photograph of themselves to a year-old is committing a crime. The high court, in its ruling, acknowledged the obvious inconsistency in the law, but nevertheless concluded that the law says what it says. Specifically, it says that a person who knowingly transmits a sexually explicit photograph to an individual under age 18 is disseminating material harmful to minors, a felony, even though it’s perfectly legal for that same under individual to view the photograph’s subject in person.
The decision means Sameer Girish Thakar, of Fishers, will face a trial for sending a sexually explicit photograph of himself in to a year-old girl in Oregon. Thakar’s case initially was dismissed in Hamilton Superior Court based on a Court of Appeals decision that found the dissemination statute void for vagueness as applied to year-olds located anywhere since that’s the age of sexual consent in Indiana. In overruling that precedent, the Supreme Court said there is no actual conflict between the statutes since it’s possible to comply with both simultaneously: “With respect to a year-old, consensual sexual activity in person is permitted, the dissemination of a sexually explicit photograph consensually or otherwise is not.
