Havens Quoted in Hemp Industry Daily on USDA's Hemp Production Rules

White House Approves USDA Hemp Rules; Release Imminent

Jonathan Havens, chair of the Firm's Food and Beverage Practice and co-chair of its Cannabis Law Practice, is quoted in Hemp Industry Daily discussing his thoughts on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's federal hemp production rules in advance of their public release.

"Despite the Farm Bill's language that nothing in the bill authorizes 'interference with the interstate commerce of hemp,' we know that law-enforcement officials in at least a few states (such as Idaho and South Dakota) have prosecuted hemp drivers," said Jonathan.
