Breaking News: United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
Issues Opinion on Case #01-71662
HEMP INDUSTRIES V DEA, ET AL.

CONCLUSION

[12] Because the DEA's rule is inconsistent with the THC regulation in effect at the time of its promulgation, it is a procedurally invalid legislative rule, not an interpretive rule. We therefore have jurisdiction under 21 U.S.C. § 877. The petition requesting that we declare the rule to be invalid and unenforceable is

GRANTED.
