On this week’s episode of The Budding Report, we are joined by Adam Trenk of Rose Law Group and Chef Sebastian Carosi. 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.

He also works as a strategist consulting across multiple industries on matters of government relations and corporate development. Adam is a Rose Law Group partner and director of the firm’s Cannabis, Hemp, and Equine Law Departments. Drawing on his experience helping maximize the productivity of agricultural operations, Adam has positioned Rose Law Group’s Hemp Law Department as the premier hemp practice in Arizona.
