On March 15 and 16, 2019, the CBD Expo Midwest 2019 was held at the Indianapolis Marriott East. From 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. March 15, 2019, I was honored to be asked to be a moderator at the “CBD vs. THC” panel.
I was once honored to have been asked to moderate a panel at the CBD Expo Midwest 2021 event, this time on the topic "2021 INSIGHT: CBD Regulations in the Midwest" from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. Saturday, April 10, 2021, once again at the Indianapolis Marriott. Panelists included Andrew Bauman, Joe Linne and Debra Smith-Torrence.
Here's the description:
“As we move into the first calendar year, the DEA no longer considers Hemp to be a controlled substance, the regulation of the hemp industry finally moves towards a place of clarity. As banking and production rules and taking shape on a federal level, individual states move to craft plans that will fit their particular localities. Understanding how states operate is crucial to running a compliant and successful national brand. As a legal medical marijuana state with a widespread hemp industry, Midwest regulators are crafting their own way. Between recent decisions to functionally decriminalize cannabis, alongside executive orders banning smokable hemp and creating a registry for CBD sellers there is a lot to know about operating in the Midwest.”
