Why Attend?

Last Year’s Agenda

Cannabis and cannabis-derived products are at a legal and regulatory crossroads at both the federal and state levels. This conference will examine the present and proposed regulatory schemes and concerns for this unique industry that impacts many FDA regulated product categories. Experts from across the country and abroad will also discuss practical concerns for entities attempting to navigate this continually evolving legal environment.

Conference Highlights:

  • Updates on federal legislation and regulation, plus recent state-level developments.
  • Analysis of the legal status of Cannabidiol (CBD), Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and other hemp-derived substances.
  • Outlook for both medical marijuana and cannabinoid ingredients in foods, dietary supplements, and cosmetics.


Call for Proposals – BE CREATIVE!

FDLI invites session proposals for its Legal and Practical Issues in Cannabis Regulation Conference. Topics should be at an advanced level and address timely and important issues related to cannabis legislation, regulation, compliance, enforcement, and litigation.

  • Topics that include a variety of perspectives and viewpoints, including government, industry, private attorneys, academics, and public interest are preferred.
  • FDLI is committed to supporting, promoting, and celebrating diversity and inclusion in the food and drug law programs. To that end, proposals addressing systematic or historical impacts on health care disparity and racial equity in relation to all areas of the FDA-regulated community are strongly encouraged.
  • We prefer submissions to include a reasonably detailed and thoughtful title for and description of the proposed session.
