Hemp businesses are required to operate in a highly regulated, rapidly evolving environment. As a result, it’s critical to pay attention to legislation and what’s going on in regulatory agencies including USDA, FDA and DEA, as well as varied state-by-state regulations. By staying abreast of current legislation before Congress affecting hemp, CBD and cannabis, the hemp industry has a unique opportunity to create the regulatory environment it seeks, but not without advocacy, vigilance…and knowledge. This track will feature policymakers, regulators, legal specialists, and legislative advocates involved in advancing the market for hemp from inside the beltway  and states across the country. Learn how what happens in Washington, DC, affects your business, and how you can stay involved to affect outcomes that favor business growth and ultimately create greater access to hemp-derived products.
