Here’s the introduction to their report
Several Trump administration officials are headed to the U.S. Senate next week to answer questions about looming hemp and CBD rules.
Senators have called for regulators who oversee agriculture, public health and pesticides to appear July 25 before the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.
The hearing, announced Wednesday, will be led by the senators who negotiated last year’s Farm Bill compromise to legalize hemp.
Scheduled to talk about where hemp rules stand are:
- Greg Ibach, undersecretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
- Dr. Amy Abernethy, who is leading a CBD review for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
- Alexandra Dapolito Dunn of the office at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that regulates pesticides.
- Stephen Alexander Vaden, USDA lawyer.
