Jonathan Havens, chair of the Firm’s Food and Beverage Practice and co-chair of Cannabis Law, is quoted in a Reuters article discussing a trend toward U.S. farmers turning to hemp in effort to combat low grain praises and pressures created by the trade wars.

Jonathan comments on the regulation of hemp products under the FDA.

"To date, the FDA has only gone after people making aggressive claims - cancer treatment claims, AIDS treatment claims and the like," said Jonathan.
