Hemp Update 2020 Implementation of the 2018 Farm Bill – USDA, FDA and Select State Updates
Sponsored by Green Mill Supercritical
Eric Steenstra is returning to join us for an update on the implementation of the hemp-related measures in the 2018 Farm Bill and various state-level initiatives.
The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill was a game changer for hemp in the U.S. and globally. The multibillion dollar hemp industry has just begun to take hold and the Farm Bill is expected to supercharge growth in this space.
Join Offit Kurman Business Law and Cannabis attorney Jason Klein, as he hosts a talk with Eric Steenstra, president of the influential political advocacy organization, Vote Hemp, to give an overview of the status of the federal and state implementation of the Farm Bill, including recent updates from the FDA, USDA and others. Eric will also be discussing what steps various states, including Maryland, have taken to pursue hemp cultivation in their area, what you can expect from the 2020 hemp growing season, and what lingering effects, if any, you should expect from COVID-19.
Join us on Friday June 5th for our webinar on this exciting topic!
This webinar will be presented in video format and will feature broader engagement opportunities for attendees to interact with the Mr. Steenstra and Mr. Klein.
