Federal Judge Rejects Legal Moves BY HIA & SC CBD Maker Re Schedule 1 Issue For Hemp By Products

Hemp Industry Daily reports…

A federal judge has rejected legal maneuvers by the Hemp Industries Association and a South Carolina CBD maker trying to get the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to clarify whether it considers temporary byproducts of hemp production a Schedule 1 substance.

In an order Tuesday by the U.S. District Court in Washington DC, Judge James Boasberg said that HIA and RE Botanicals were acting in an “unusual manner” to get the DEA to answer advance questions about a rule the agency issued in August that criminalizes common byproducts of cannabinoid extraction.

The rule is in effect, though the DEA has yet to enforce it.

The judge said the DEA shouldn’t have to explain its position before the lawsuit goes to trial.
