A new hemp law went into effect throughout Texas this month. One that bans the sale of smokeable hemp products.
Many Texas hemp businesses are up in arms and claim the new regulation will set the flourishing hemp industry in Texas back several steps. They are suing the state for its ban and claim the regulation is an overreach and not in the state’s best interest.
One of the key figures in pushing back against the statewide ban is Texas cannabis lawyer, Chelsie Spencer of Ritter Spencer. She is representing at least one of the companies in the lawsuit.
She told Marijuana Moment, ““At a time when the Texas economy is reeling from the fiscal impact of COVID-19, it is unfortunate that the State chose to foreclose such a large economic opportunity for our state and instead chose to force long-standing Texas businesses and jobs across the border to neighboring states, such as Oklahoma.”
At at a time when entrepreneurs are already reeling from the economic impact of Cov-ID19, Spencer is making the case that banning a popular revenue generator will only hurt the state’s recovery.
