Andrea Steel will be a panelist discussing CBD Regulations in Texas.
Abstract: As we move into the first calendar year, the DEA no longer considers Hemp to be a controlled substance, the regulation of hemp industry finally moves towards a place of clarity. As banking and production rules and taking shape on a federal level, individual states move to craft plans that will fit their particular localities. Understanding how states operate is crucial to running a compliant and successful national brand. As a legal medical marijuana state with a wide spread hemp industry, Texas regulators are crafting their own way. Between recent decisions to functionally decriminalize cannabis, alongside executive orders banning smokable hemp and creating a registry for CBD sellers there is a lot to know about operating in the Lone Star state.
