Hemp Legally Speaking Podcast
With hemp being legalized only recently, legal and regulatory regimes concerning the crop and its products such as CBD are continually evolving. Jonathan Miller, who helped craft much of federal and state hemp laws in his role as General Counsel of the US Hemp Roundtable, hosts a biweekly podcast in which he engages in 15-20 minute discussions of cutting-edge legal issues facing the industry. Jonathan speaks on each program with subject matter experts from Frost Brown Todd’s nationally leading hemp industry team.

Now he spends his time working with Congress, the White House, the USDA, FDA and DEA to promote policies that advance the industry. Jonathan serves as Member in Charge of Frost Brown Todd’s Washington, D.C. office, and leads the national law firm’s broad and diverse hemp industry team.
