What is the Most Sensible Framework for the Regulation of Cannabis Products?

Jonathan Havens, co-chair of both the Firm's Cannabis Law Practice and its Food, Beverage, and Agribusiness Practice, will participate in a panel discussion titled "What is the Most Sensible Framework for the Regulation of Cannabis Products." This session will begin with an overview of the current types of products available and their intended use. Panelists will then share their perspectives on ideal regulatory approaches for different types of THC, CBD, and other hemp-derived ingredient products, including possible federal frameworks modeled after food safety, tobacco control, or others, whether an FDA Center for Cannabis Products should be established, lessons learned from current state regulation, and thoughts on where federal oversight should end and state discretion should begin.
