Lisa Pittman will speak on” Texas Hemp: Rules, Regulations, and Rollout,” at the Texas Marijuana Policy Conference, November 20-21, 2020.
In 2019, the legalization of hemp went into effect nationwide. Texas responded by establishing an infrastructure for licensing and regulation through the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). Since then, TDA and industry leaders have worked to navigate this historic first growing season, overcoming regulatory and agricultural challenges.
Lisa and fellow panelists, Shawn Hauser with Vicente Sederberg LLP and Dan Hunter with Texas Department of Agriculture will discuss the federal and state rule-making process, Texas’ regulatory climate for hemp, and the 2020 growing season so far.
