The cannabis industry, including marijuana, hemp and cannabidiol (CBD), is complex and rapidly evolving. Shook Partners Mike Barnett, Lindsey Heinz, and Jim Muehlberger lead a discussion about how the legal landscape is changing for this burgeoning area and why it matters to the food and beverage industry. The presentation covers the differences between marijuana and industrial hemp; how the 2018 Farm Bill altered the current federal regulatory landscape; the impact on food, food supplement and consumer product industries; and the different approaches states have taken in the absence of Food and Drug Administration guidance.
