ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia judge has halted efforts by a suburban Atlanta prosecutor to enforce a ban on some cannabis extracts, in a case that could set a statewide precedent.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Fulton County Superior Court Judge Craig Schwall on Friday issued a 30-day order restraining Gwinnett County District Attorney Patsy Austin-Gaston from prosecuting people for selling or possessing the extracts.

“I have concerns that this may or may not be a rogue DA,” Schwall said. “I think there may be some prosecutorial priorities misplaced.”

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by two owners of Gwinnett County vaping stores seeking to have two extracts — delta-8 and delta-10 THC — declared legal in Georgia. The chemicals are similar to the main intoxicating ingredient in marijuana but cause milder highs. They are typically sold in vape cartridges, tinctures, gummies and other edibles.

Other states are also wrangling with the substances’ murky legality.

Austin-Gaston said in January that possessing, selling or distributing the substances are felony offenses. She directed raids of at least two distributors, seizing millions in inventory. At least one person is facing felony marijuana charges, attorney Tom Church said.

Church’s firm is also representing owners of other Gwinnett vape shops not raided. [Read More @ AP News]
