The guests join our hosts Charles Horton, Melissa Nasits, Christian Shaw, MD, PhD, and Chris Perri as we discuss a Texas judge blocking the Texas Department of State Health Services ban on smokable hemp as well as the USDA’s ruling looming, prompting a ramp up of pressure from the industry for changes or delaying of the ruling.
