A dietary supplements regulatory veteran weighs in on CBD's shifting fortunes under a Biden administration.
ToddCast Vol. XXIX: Duffy MacKay has lived and breathed Washington, D.C., for a decade as senior vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs for the Council for Responsible Nutrition, a leading trade group serving the dietary supplements industry.
