Urge Lawmakers in Iowa to Defeat HSB 646!
At first glance, HSB 646 appears innocuous. It makes non-substantive changes to some of Iowa’s hemp-related definitions and even provides a new definition for “consumable hemp products” that includes inhalable, ingestible, and topical products. However, the bill also requires that hemp products be produced in compliance with USDA’s Interim Final Rule (“IFR”) andsold in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (“FDC&A”). As discussed here earlier, many states are not adopting the IFR in 2020, and hemp products from those states could be prohibited. Worse yet, Iowa’s Attorney General has opined that it is illegal under the FDC&A for CBD to be sold as dietary supplements or as a food and beverage additive.
