US drug regulators are redoubling their emphasis on the illegality of cannabis extracts with high thc levels, even if they come from industrial marijuana. DEA lawyers told the judge that the agency had no intention of giving up control of extracts with elevated thc levels. Shane Pennington, a lawyer at the industrial marijuana Industry Association, believes that CBD manufacturers will "inevitably" handle extracts with more than 0.3% THC. However, CBD manufacturers can adjust their middle note to meet legal requirements. When Congress authorized the national industrial marijuana production in 2018, it did not mean to make CBD production illegal, and DEA mistakenly tried to make itself responsible for the CBD industry. The case is expected to be decided within three to six months.
