About the Event

The availability of cannabinoid-containing products following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill has increased exponentially, partially driven by demand and interest in its potential health and wellness benefits. However, questions remain on the legality, quality, safety, and effectiveness of many of these products. Our panel experts will discuss:

  • the scientific and legal differences between cannabis, hemp, and cannabinoids
  • the perceived benefits and known risks of cannabinoid-containing products
  • the historic and current regulatory and legislative environment for these products
  • policy recommendations that would create an environment that fosters development and innovation for these products while protecting consumer safety


  • Carmen Witsken, Executive Fellow, American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP)
  • Mark Bolton, Head of Global Public Policy & Sr. Legal Counsel, Jazz Pharmaceuticals
  • Sally Greenberg, Executive Director, National Consumers League (NCL)
  • Joe Hill, Director of Government Affairs, US Pharmacopeia (USP)
