Delta-8 has become extremely popular across the country, and the cannabis industry and state governments have grappled with its rise. An Atlanta law firm said it filed a lawsuit Thursday after the district attorney in Gwinnett County threatened to prosecute businesses selling products with delta-8 and a related chemical, delta-10. District Attorney Patsy Austin-Gatson said in January that the possession, sale or distribution of delta-8 is illegal under state law, according to the suit by the firm, Pate, Johnson & Church.
