NEW YORK - Beginning Tuesday, the city will issue violations to any store that sells food or drink containing CBD.
The health department issued the ban over the summer.
It comes after last year's FDA advisory making it illegal to add CBD to food or drink.
Businesses that do not comply could face fines between $200 and $650, and violation points may count toward the establishment’s letter grade.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is an active ingredient in cannabis plants. It doesn't make people high. Users claim it just helps them relax.
The FDA says it's working to draw up new CBD regulations.
