Web Chat: How Bad is the DEA’s New CBD Rule?

avatar Alex Halperin / Sep 11, 2020

Earlier this week, I wrote a story about a new DEA rule that insiders say threatens the CBD and hemp industries. In short, it doesn’t allow manufacturers to ever possess a substance containing more than 0.3% THC.

In this video chat, I discuss the rule with Marc Hauser, a cannabis attorney at law firm Reed Smith, and Ben Gonzales, an executive at Premium CBD Labs.

The shorter answer is there are a lot of unanswered questions and the DEA isn’t being especially helpful about answering them.
