Hemp Industries Association petitions for review of a decision of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, and challenges the Final Rule – Establishment of a New Drug Code for Marihuana Extract.
Remember when the media went haywire back in December 2017 and claimed the DEA allegedly classified CBD as a schedule 1 drug regardless of where it came from even though they have no authority to change laws made by congress or create a law? This is a follow up of that. HIA is now fighting it in court.
Does the DEA have a leg to stand on or did they cross their jurisdiction by trying to categorize CBD as a schedule one drug and change a law that congress and the president of the United States in 2014 set forth to protect the industrial hemp plant?
