CBD companies get hit with wave of class action lawsuits

June 15, 2020, Politico

Miriam Guggenheim spoke with Politico about the proliferation of CBD retailers and manufacturers and the wave of recent class-action lawsuits. Ms. Guggenheim says, “It's an area of uncertainty. I do think this is an area where FDA has primary jurisdiction, and the courts should allow at least the questions of the legality of CBD or hemp extracts to be determined by FDA.” She adds, “They tap into a vein, and then it's easy to make copycat complaints. I expect that’s likely to continue as other marketers enter the fray doing the same kinds of things that people have already been sued for doing.”
