Update on our appeal in the 9th Circuit Volkswagen Diesel Fraud Case

The Appellate Panel consolidated our Bosch appeal with the Volkswagen appeal and a decision should be announced soon.  If successful the appeal would set aside the largest consumer fraud settlement in history while leaving Volkswagen on the hook.  The settlement allowed Volkswagen to "hide and conceal" claims from the Court and Settlement Master Robert Mueller. 
We filed an action in Butte County yesterday with the intent of having a jury decide punitive damages. We would be the first party to bring the defeat device case to jury trial.  Peer reviewed studies proved thousands of people with lung diseases died from the fraud.  

 

FDA warns cannabis companies selling CBD supplements

Posted by Fred Fletcher on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 Under: Cannabis Regulation

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued another round of legal warnings to companies marketing products that contain cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in marijuana.

The FDA issued similar warning letters to six companies last year.

The warning letters criticize the products for not containing the amount of CBD they claim to. They also take aim at health claims the companies have made about those products.

As Alan Brochstein explains in New Cannabis Ventures, companies are prohibited from making health claims unless the product was marketed before GW Pharma published clinical trials.

The FDA considers CBD to be a “new drug” and not a dietary supplement. Therefore, CBD products must be used under the supervision of a doctor and cannot be sold as supplements, according to FDA regulations.
