DEA Attempts to Regulate Hemp Foods as Schedule 1 Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) has sued the DEA over an illegal attempt to regulate hemp foods as schedule 1 drugs. The agency ignored a prior court ruling and clear congressional intent in the 2014 Farm Bill which forced the HIA to take action to protect American Hemp Farmers from unlawful DEA registration requirements by filing a lawsuit. 

“WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Hemp Industries Association (HIA), the leading non-profit trade association consisting of hundreds of hemp businesses, has filed a motion to hold the Drug Enforcement Administration in contempt of court for violating an unchallenged, long-standing order issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco, prohibiting the agency from regulating hemp food products as Schedule I controlled substances. Specifically, the HIA asserts that the DEA continues to operate with blatant disregard for the 2004 ruling made by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which permanently enjoined the DEA from regulating hemp fiber, stalk, sterilized seed and oil, which are specifically exempted from the definition of ‘marijuana’ in the federal Controlled Substances Act.”

More Businesses Dropping Pot from Pre-Employment Drug Tests

Thankfully, testing for pot in Colorado work sites has declined over the past two years. Some companies, seven percent, have totally dropped marijuana from their pre-employment tests and three percent have removed it from all drug tests.

It’s about time, considering that recreational weed in Colorado was approved by voters in 2012 and medical marijuana in 2000.

A survey done by the Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) in December marked a shift from 2014, when when one-in-five employers reported stringent drug-testing policies, reported the Denver Postwhich pointed out that these results don’t necessarily mean businesses are happy about their employees smoking weed.

“It’s because we have low unemployment,” said Curtis Graves, an attorney with MSEC. “They may prefer a zero-tolerance approach. From a business perspective, they just can’t afford to be as choosy now.”

Gee, Colorado…what are you complaining about?
