Protecting the Hemp Industry's Future

The 2020 legislative session is critically important to the hemp industry. The full implementation of the USDA Interim Final Rules (IFR) and end of 2014 Farm Bill programs are imminent, and if the IFR is implemented without amending problematic provisions, the hemp industry and its farmers risk losing many of the protections achieved over the past five years. As this window of opportunity for reform closes, time is running out for the hemp industry to demand reasonable regulation that ensures its success. In this presentation, representatives from Vicente Sederberg LLP, Agricultural Hemp Solutions LLC and Vote Hemp discuss efforts being made to align federal legislation and USDA rulemaking with the domestic hemp industry.
