Scientists and Veterans Sue the DEA?

In this week’s video, I talk about a lawsuit taking place in my home State of Texas.

 

A group of four hemp producers sued the State of Texas last month over the ban of smokable hemp, which currently prevents the production, distribution and sale of products intended for smoking or vaporization.

A Travis County Judge (Lora Livingston) granted a temporary injunction that effectively voids the ban until the conclusion of a trial set to begin in February.

 

I will be keeping a close eye on this lawsuit here in Texas.

 

Also there is a fairly new, bipartisan bill that was introduced in the House earlier this month.  H.R.8179 titled Hemp and Hemp-derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act, if passed could be a game changer for our friends in the hemp industry.

In this week’s video I thought about talking about how the House passed the SAFE Banking Act for a third time; however, I will wait to discuss the SAFE Banking Act when it passes both the House and the Senate.

 


 

So instead, today I talk about an ongoing lawsuit between a team of scientists and military veterans against the DEA and its scheduling of marijuana.
