Washington D.C.— The National Consumers League, along with CADCA – a national nonprofit organization committed to creating safe, healthy, and drug-free communities globally – submitted today a joint letter to the commissioners of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Major League Baseball (MLB) expressing concern over the recently announced partnership between MLB and cannabidol (CBD) maker Charlotte’s Web.

“The lack of the product is not well understood by the public and this type of agreement sends … a deceptive message to consumers, implying that CBD is regulated – or at the very least, tested, and proven safe,” according to the letter.
