Rod Kight & the Kight On Cannabis Blog
I am Rod Kight. I live in Asheville, North Carolina where I practice law, raise five kids, play music, advocate for cannabis legalization, and enjoy life. I hope you find this blog to be informative, entertaining, and a helpful vehicle for cannabis advocacy. Cannabis should be legal in all of its forms and I intend for this blog to be a part of the larger legalization movement.
Please be mindful that possessing, using, distributing and selling marijuana are all federal crimes and that this blog is not intended to give you any legal advice, much less lead you to believe that marijuana is legal under federal law. Please also note that even though marijuana is illegal under federal law, you will need to pay federal taxes just as though you are a legal entity. This is true even if you are a state law not-for-profit entity.

The Definitive Word on Weed
I recently enjoyed some in depth discussions with editor Maryam Heinan and writer Alexandra Preston about hemp and CBD under the the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Farm Bill specifically prohibits a state from interfering with the transportation or commerce of hemp and hemp products within its borders. So why are Ohio and other states interfering?
All cannabis products come from cannabis plants, which necessarily grow from cannabis seeds. This article is a summary overview of the legal status of cannabis seeds in four select European countries, with a postscript about importing seeds into the USA.
Governments across the world, having become familiar with the health benefits of marijuana, are now legalizing cannabis use for medical patients. As a result, medical marijuana has become more mainstream than ever in the health industry.
Rod recently spoke with CBD School on the 2018 Farm Bill and the future of hemp and CBD.
Here’s what you need to know about your legal rights when you are in possession of hemp but approached or arrested for marijuana.
These two issues will define and shape the hemp and CBD industry in 2019.
Although not binding law, the FDA’s Statement provides some important insights into its current view and the direction it may take with respect to hemp and CBD.
According to all predictions the hemp and CBD industry is about to take off like a rocket ship.
I had a great time recently talking with award winning journalist Rhiannon Fionn, editor and publisher of the Carolina Cannabis News (CCN), for a recent podcast.
I was honored to speak on two panels at CBD Expo East with a number of excellent co-panelists: “Regulatory (Re-)Scheduling of CBD & its Drug Abuse Liability” and “Globalization: CBD in Markets Around the World”.
The cannabis industry is growing like a weed. Since 2016, US revenue from cannabis has almost doubled.
In a very real and practical way, using one testing method can result in a different legal outcome than a using a different method.
“The evolving regulatory status of CBD”, a paper I co-wrote with Dr. Jamie Corroon, was published this week on the popular Project CBD website.
I enjoyed sharing a panel to discuss hemp legal issues with my friends and fellow attorneys at the Southern US Hemp Conference and Expo this week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
