Join Courtney N. Moran, LL.M., EARTH Law, LLC and Shawn Hauser, Vicente Sederberg LLP, for a Hemp 101 Regulatory Update. With historic Final Rules published by USDA, the new 117th Congress, and recent public statements from DEA and FDA, federal hemp policy is quickly advancing, and creating new opportunities (and hurdles) for states, tribal governments, and industry stakeholders. We’ve come a long way to bring hemp out of prohibition and into agricultural regulation, but the federal framework is imperfect and we must continue our efforts to secure an effective framework for this promising industry. As hemp policy continues to evolve, ensure you are staying at the forefront of regulatory developments to provide your clients with the best counsel for the 2021 production season.
