Impact statement

The 2018 Federal Farm Act created a legal differentiation between hemp and marijuana, requiring laboratories to measure the Total Delta 9 THC content of marijuana and derived products. Testing of suspected marijuana morphed from a simple workflow to a very complex and confusing combination of requirements and reporting language. This testing was not routinely performed in many seized drug laboratories. At the same time, cannabinoid markets became much more complex with the proliferation of many different sample types. These changes resulted in significant management, quality, R&D, and capacity challenges for laboratories.
