DEA Hit With Hemp Industry Lawsuit

Stakeholders in the American hemp industry have filed a lawsuit against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to challenge a recently-implemented rule that they say could have far-reaching consequences.

On Friday, September 18, the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and South Carolina hemp manufacturer and retailer RE Botanicals filed a petition in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

HIA is a trade association representing approximately 1,050 hemp businesses, including 300 processors and others who are involved with or impacted by the manufacture, distribution, and sale of legal industrial hemp-derived products.

Representing the petitioners in the lawsuit are the Hoban Law Group, appellate attorneys from Yetter Coleman LLP, Kight Law Office PC, and hemp industry attorneys at Vicente Sederberg LLP.
