1. CBD can be purchased and shipped via FedEx, UPS, or even the USPS, to any of the 50 states – AS LONG AS the product is sourced from hemp that is grown outside the United States and imported, and contains less than 0.3% THC (i.e. it is a non-psychoactive product). BUT – if the exact same product is sourced from a Colorado hemp farm (State-legal in Colorado, of course), it’s in the same category as heroin.
2. The Cole Memorandum provided a highly sane but non-permanent solution to the idiocy of the federal laws on the subject by effectively saying that it makes no sense to spend tax dollars prosecuting hemp-related “offenses” while we’re dealing with an opiate crisis (and all manner of other serious and deadly crimes) with limited money to do so.
3. Congress is at the point of the complicity in all this idiocy by refusing to remove hemp products of any sort from Schedule 1, right up there with oxycodone, Fentanyl, etc. As long as Congress retains the law that equates hemp with heroin, this won’t be legally (and sanely) resolved. But then the BigPharma “subsidies” paid to our elected “representatives” help keep the status quo.
4. Sessions’ motivation is beyond questionable, given his prohibition-era rhetoric on the subject of the evils of that dreaded marijuana plant, along with the reported heavy contributions from the private prison industry.
