The establishment of medical and recreational marijuana regulatory programs at the state level continues to challenge the current federal approach to pesticide regulation. Recently, EPA established a clearer path forward for the approval of products intended for use with marijuana cultivation. This webinar by expert speaker Erik R. Janus describes the recently established EPA policy and "use pattern bridging" approach, the history and need for federal policies to complement state needs, the challenges of implementation, and the impact to your business.
Currently, federal and state law conflict when it comes to the legal use of pesticide products on medical or recreational marijuana crops. Both the states and the federal government have established novel interpretations of federal law to allow for use of agrichemicals (both organic and conventional) on this "new" crop, which is likely to expand to other states as time goes on. This presentation will help you understand the new policies and approaches that states and EPA are taking to accommodate the new legalization of marijuana in certain states as well as understand how product selection and use may be impacted.
This webinar, in addition to teaching you about upcoming regulatory compliance issues, will provide helpful hints and resources for all levels of experience. Small companies or those newer to the field may benefit particularly from the knowledge imparted during the presentation.
