What’s Up with CBD?: Campus Policies and Concerns Regarding This Trending Cannabinoid

June 4, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET | Presented by Dr. Jim Lange

CBD is a chemical found in all strains of Cannabis plants. Recently, there has been a great deal of excitement about its potential as a therapeutic medicine. However, due to various legal contradictions both within and between state and federal laws, its status is confusing. Many campuses are struggling with what to do about CBD. We’ve received questions ranging from appropriate student sanctions for possession and to its impact on DFSCA compliance, all the way to the other side of the spectrum: can a campus sell it in its bookstore? This session will explore the chemical, the confusion regarding its legal status, and reasonable concerns we have regarding its presence on campus.
