Massachusetts: Help us support HB 146!
He’s always on the go, which keeps him in the know! U.S. Hemp Roundtable General Counsel, Jonathan Miller, spent the month of September here and there sharing his sentiments on legislation and regulations the organization has been advocating for on both a state and national level. Between his time in D.C. and traveling state-to-state to provide current legislative and industry updates, he still managed to play poker twice a week. Check out the latest from our very own Jonathan Miller.
Yesterday’s Fall Members Meeting of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable made a lot of national news noise – and it’s no wonder, given the all-star lineup that joined the Roundtable in its virtual DC “fly-in.” The Roundtable Board met with a dozen FDA officials that serve on the agency’s Cannabis Product Council. The membership subsequently met with the USDA’s new Hemp Work Group, and White House officials that serve the President on agriculture and drug control policy.
HB 5058, HB 5059, HB 5060, HB 5061 are important bills being supported by the Roundtable. Together, they would ensure that hemp-derived CBD could be sold as a dietary supplement or food and beverage additive. HB 5058 provides that food is not adulterated solely because it contains hemp. HB 5059 removes the requirement that a hemp grower be licensed as a hemp or marijuana processor to sell finished hemp products.
