Webinar: More on Marijuana and Hemp Analysis

March 16, 2020 — In January, the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence presented a webinar entitled "Marijuana or Hemp: From Farm Bill to Forensic Analysis." Due to "overwhelming attendance and interaction" during that first webinar, the FTCOE are presenting a sequel webinar that promises to offer more information and answer even more direct questions from the forensic community.

"The Sequel — Marijuana or Hemp" on March 25, 2020 from 1 - 2 p.m. ET, will help attendees understand the 2018 Farm Bill, which created a USDA-administered hemp program and required the USDA to establish a regulatory framework to monitor compliance and regular hemp production. Attendees will learn how to understand the difference between Δ9-THC and Δ9-THCA, and will gain an overview of the new analysis protocol implemented in DEA laboratories to efficiently identify marijuana submissions.
