On Thursday, our very own Director of Operations, Katelyn Meckes (Wiard), testified before the Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee regarding the Kentucky Department of Public Health’s emergency regulations concerning intoxicating cannabinoids, such as delta-8 THC. USHR Member, Jim Higdon, also testified supporting USHR feedback during the hearing.
The Administration has been very responsive to our concerns so far, and we were pleased to hear their willingness to continue working with us during the hearing to address some of the outstanding concerns we have raised. Katelyn expressed these issues during her testimony, to which both leaders of the state legislature and the department of health agreed that ongoing collaboration with the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is essential to ensure the final regulation accomplishes consumer safety and fair market participation.
