Hemp industry loses case against DEA, as federal appeals court says CBD a controlled substance
"A federal appeals court sided with the Drug Enforcement Administration and upheld its decision that CBD is a
Schedule 1 controlled substance – a major setback for the American hemp industry. The decision, issued Monday
by a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit in San Francisco, means that hemp producers can only sell cannabidiol
where it is allowed under state law.
It also means that states that allow CBD – even if they don’t allow the sale of high-THC marijuana – are violating
federal law, the same as states that allow recreational cannabis."
