General Membership Luncheon

In December 2018 for the first time in almost 100 years, Hemp was removed from the purview of the DEA and placed under the regulation of the Department of Agriculture, just like any other traditional crop. The immediate and future ramifications of this landmark decision are vast. Hemp touches many consumer product markets and has shown great promise in terms of being a subtainable and green alternative to many items we use today.

Topics to be dicussed:

1) History of the Hemp plant both internationally and domestic
2) Dive into the economics of hemp (Cultivation, Processing, Finished Products)
3) Explain the current legal environment, dive into the FDA’s participation in Hemp Wellness Products
4) End with a forecast for the Hemp industry over the next 5-10 years for both Maryland and the United States
