House legislation to exempt hemp-derived cannabinoids from FDA rule that an “article” previously studied or approved for use as drugs is not allowed for use in dietary supplements either resolves a conundrum or raises additional questions for the agency and the industry.
“This is truly uncharted territory because we’ve never had this situation,” says CHPA senior VP David Spangler.

Legislation to expand health savings accounts to include vitamin, mineral and supplement products reached Senate floor vote before failing.
