In the event you missed the announcement, HIA Members in good standing are invited to participate in an initial discussion to gauge interest in and explore the potential for a U.S. Hemp Checkoff Program. This two and a half hour, exploratory web conference call will review the potential requirements and steps that would be necessary for the hemp industry to implement the kind of research and promotional program that has had major positive impacts on domestic commodities for over fifty years, and spawned seminal marketing campaigns like: “Got Milk?” and “Pork: The Other White Meat."

NEW AND NOTEWORTHY

A long-simmering dispute over hemp and CBD legislation in California is coming to a head, with a compromise bill possible this week.

There isn’t much time.

The race is on to get California CBD legislation passed before the end of August, when the state legislature’s 2020 session ends. Lawmakers have to file, debate and pass the bill by Monday – or California’s booming hemp and CBD industries will have to wait until 2021 to see an update to creaky CBD regulations in the nation’s most populous state.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) is joining several of his colleagues in calling on the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to delay the implementation of proposed hemp rules, citing concerns about certain restrictive policies the federal agency has put forward in an interim proposal.

The senator sent a letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue on Tuesday, urging the department to hold off on a final rule until it is able to consult with stakeholders and state regulators “to ensure workable rules that allow the industry to thrive.”
