SupplySide West Podcast 26: Cannabis Industry 'Embraces' Regulation

The regulation of cannabis under laws in Colorado and other states gives the public confidence that the industry ;is closely guarded and strictly controlled, attorney Bob Hoban tells Natural Products INSIDER.

Editor's note: The podcast above reflects a portion of a recorded interview with cannabis attorney Bob Hoban. A subsequent podcast will explore the lawyer's perspective on a lawsuit that his firm filed against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on behalf of the hemp industry to challenge a marijuana extract rule.

Dozens of states have adopted comprehensive medical marijuana and cannabis programs, and Americans are increasingly embracing the legal sale of recreational marijuana.

In this podcast with Josh Long, INSIDER's legal editor, cannabis attorney Bob Hoban discusses:

  • the benefits of the regulated cannabis industry;
  • DEA’s refusal to reschedule marijuana;
  • and a federal budget amendment that protects the medical marijuana sector.

Hoban will be speaking on Thursday, Sept. 28, during a panel at SupplySide West in Las Vegas. The panel, “The State of CBD in Dietary Supplements,” will explore business opportunities in the CBD market, regulatory challenges, and recommendations for bringing new products to market.
