Hemp Industries Association Responds To FDA Warning Letters Regarding Mislabeling Of Cannabidiol (CBD) Products

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

cannabidiol cbd cannabis marijuanaHemp Industries Association (HIA), the non-profit North American hemp trade association, has published its statement in response to recent warning letters sent by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to manufacturers of CBD products, regarding mis-labeling of drug claims on said products.  Available on the FDA website, the letters explain that per the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act, CBD products may not be marketed as drugs, meaning manufacturers cannot make claims regarding CBD products’ efficacy in the cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease. Furthermore, the FDA asserts that cannabidiol products may not be marketed as supplements, because ‘new drug’ consideration is currently pending for CBD. To view these letters in their entirety, dated February 4, 2016, please visit:http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/#browse.

It is the position of the HIA that legal hemp products containing CBD were marketed as foods and dietary supplements long before cannabidiol formulations were submitted to the FDA for testing as a ‘new drug.’ As such, CBD products are exempt from laws that preclude CBDs from product status as dietary supplements pending ‘new drug’ approval by the FDA. Though none of the companies in receipt of these warning letters are current or former HIA members, the HIA urges these CBD product manufacturers to revise their product labeling and marketing such that no medical claims are made.

“There is great potential for the CBD market to expand in the U.S., but we need to move forward as an industry on a path that defines cannabidiol products as dietary supplements, much like multi-vitamins and herbal products,” said Eric Steenstra, Executive Director of the Hemp Industries Association.

Indiana Wants to Increase Drug Penalties, But Not for Marijuana Offenders

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

While some states have made the move in recent years to reduce the number of non-violent drug offenders the system locks away behind bars, the Indiana Legislature is considering a bill this session that aims to increase the penalties for those caught in possession of specific controlled substances, but not marijuana.

The bill – HB 1235 – would shred a law approved by the state two years ago reducing the sentences for drug-related offenses, and impose a new set of rules that would reinforce the mandatory minimum sentences imposed against people busted for drugs like methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin. Representative Greg Steuerwald, who introduced the legislation, believes it would assist in alleviating the drug problem in the Hoosier state by forcing repeat offenders to serve out the full span of a mandatory jail term instead of giving them their freedom after serving only 75 percent of their sentence.

Tampa sets date to vote on marijuana penalties

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Tampa could soon become the next city in Florida to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana.

In a push to decriminalize the posession of small amounts of marijuana in Tampa, on Thursday city council members decided on a date to vote on the issue.

The legal department has drafted an ordinance that would give civil citations to people who are caught with 20 grams or less of marijuana. Fines would start at $75 and must be paid within 30 days to prevent court proceedings. The person would also have to go to drug counseling. If a person has more than four citations, that will also trigger court proceedings.
