One Year of Legal Hemp, What Have We Learned?

Date TBA

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

Just over a year after hemp was federally legalized, what has the industry learned and what does the future hold for the hemp economy? Hear from hemp industry leaders who will share the lessons they have learned in the first year since the federal government removed hemp from the controlled substances act. Featuring leaders from the legal, business, and advocacy communities, this panel will explore such topics as: what hemp products are legal or not legal, how are companies courting investment and finding opportunities for growth amid regulator uncertainty, and what does the future of the hemp economy look like?
