The cannabis and cannabis-derived products market continues to grow with increasing legalization at the state level. However, laws and regulations can vary greatly from state to state, and the future outlook remains murky at the federal level. 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, regulation, and enforcement
  • State-level developments in legalization and regulation implementation
  • Outlook for both medical marijuana and cannabinoid ingredients in foods, dietary supplements, and cosmetics
