The Transportation Brief®: A Quarterly Newsletter, Winter 2019 - Dispatches
Brandon Wiseman and Jerad Childress report that President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law on December 20, 2018, which, among other things, removed hemp and its derivatives from the federal list of illegal controlled substances.

Braden Core reports that the Transportation Security Administration recently approved several vendors as certified third-party canine screening providers. Many forwarders, airlines, and cargo-screening companies are digging into this new method of screening cargo for transportation by air.
