Cannabis, Marijuana, CBD: The Practical and Legal Outlook

Category Management Launchers

I hear about all of the laws changing in regards to marijuana, cbd, and other cannabis products, but I'm not sure what it means for my business.

Despite being hailed as a major development for the cannabis industry, the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill did not offer a panacea of opportunities for retailers seeking to sell cannabis products. In fact, today only a narrow set of hemp-derived CBD products can legally be sold by retailers. Nonetheless, many retailers are taking the risk to sell other federally illegal hemp-derived CBD products, and even marijuana-based products, in their stores and online. In this session, you will discover what is going on at the federal level; the FDA’s future approach to foods, dietary supplements, and body care products that contain cannabis derivatives; and what legal shifts may be coming down the pipeline in your local jurisdiction. We will also dive into what your role is as an employer when it comes to drug testing, substance abuse policies, and managing medical/fitness for duty issues.
