Andrea Steel will speak on “What can Texas Learn from other states?” at the Texas Marijuana Policy Conference, on November 21, 2020.

In 1996, California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana. Since then 35 additional states followed suit and 15 states have chosen to repeal marijuana prohibition entirely, legalizing responsible adult use of the plant.Texas is late to the table, but increasingly, lawmakers are considering the prospect of meaningful reform. We have the benefit of learning from other states’ mistakes and implementing policy that works for Texas.

Andrea and fellow panelists will discuss Texas’ opportunities and key provisions that should be included in legislation, including reasonable levels of taxation, social equity programs, and product diversity.

Date: July 11, 2020

Time: 1:30PM - 2:15PM

Location: Hilton Houston North in Houston, Texas

Cannabis Law

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.
