Former FDA official, ex-Arkansas attorney general join hemp lobbying group

A U.S. hemp standards group has added a former state attorney general and a former FDA official to the organization’s board.

The appointments of former Arkansas attorney general Dustin McDaniel and Larisa Pavlick were announced Thursday by the U.S. Hemp Authority Board, a self-regulating organization.

Pavlick currently serves as vice president of Global Quality and Compliance for the United Natural Products Alliance, which represents the dietary supplement industry. While at the FDA’s Denver District Office, she worked as a consumer safety officer and investigator.

Prior to being attorney general, McDaniel was an elected member of the Arkansas House of Representatives. During his first two-year term, which began in 2005, he was elected state attorney general.

    Under the FD&C Act it is illegal to introduce products into interstate commerce that contain CBD or THC in addition to promoting CBD or TCH as a dietary supplement or as part of one is also against the FD&C Act regardless of whether the substances are derived from hemp.
    To date, selling CBD as a dietary supplement or as part of a food or beverage is not legal.
