The federal farm bill in 2018 made the substance legal because of its low THC content. Three years after federal legislation removed the marijuana extract known as delta-8 THC from the nation’s list of controlled substances, Texas health officials have put it on its own list of illegal drugs, sending a shockwave through the growing…
The FDA’s failure to regulate a multibillion-dollar market is a detriment to consumers and businesses alike. In August of last year, the Food and Drug Administration held a teleconference with Sarah Brown, the proprietor of Maison Terre, a natural products repackager that Brown ran out of her home in Arkansas. An FDA lab analysis had…
In my 40 years of collecting a paycheck, I gotta admit this has been the oddest business trip I have ever embarked on, beginning with the packed Spirit Airline flight from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to the check-in at the Westgate hotel to grabbing my press credentials Tuesday afternoon at the Las Vegas Convention Center. When…
