French ban on hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) marketing found to contradict EU law

The court of justice of the European Union has ruled that France’s ban on marketing hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) is unlawful, arguing that it contradicts EU law on the free movement of goods. The decision comes after France prosecuted KanaVape, a company that exports CBD products derived from hemp plants.
