Our hemp industry attorneys are well versed in the complex interplay between federal, state, and local hemp laws, as well as FDA, USDA, and DEA hemp industry regulations.


The Agriculture Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) legalized hemp cultivation in the United States, making hemp products such as food, supplements, ointments oils, and smokable devices widely available. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) oversees hemp at the federal level and works closely with states under the 2018 Farm Bill. States can now license hemp cultivation by submitting regulatory plans to the USDA.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) proposed its interim final rule on hemp and its derivatives on August 21, 2020. The DEA states that any material containing more than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis is still classified as a Schedule I substance. This is a key area of potential trouble for the hemp industry.

Our hemp industry can guide your business through convoluted and oftentimes conflicting state and federal, and local regulations governing hemp cultivation and manufacturing of hemp products.
