USA Agriculture Chair Collin Peterson, a Minnesota Democrat, has mooted changing the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C) to include the regulation of hemp-derived CBD and products containing the substance.

The bill introduced this week signals that legislators are considering requiring such changes to open market opportunities for CBD.
