SPEAKER PROFILE

  • U.S. Hemp Roundtable

    General Counsel


         

  • There are few individuals who have been more influential in the development of the U.S. hemp industry than U.S. Hemp Roundtable General Counsel, Jonathan Miller. Upon helping found the Roundtable (and its sister organization, the U.S. Hemp Authority), Jonathan has served as the industry’s leading advocate for hemp and CBD legislation on the ground in Congress and in dozens of state legislatures. A recovering politician (the Democrat was elected twice as Kentucky’s State Treasurer), Jonathan has worked across the aisle with leading hemp champions such as U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on critical legislation, including the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills. Now he spends his time working with Congress, the White House, the USDA, FDA and DEA to promote policies that advance the industry. Jonathan serves as Member in Charge of Frost Brown Todd’s Washington, D.C. office, and leads the national law firm’s broad and diverse hemp practice. Jonathan supports pro-Israel organizations and serves as President of the Robert S. Miller Family Foundation for Justice and Equity. He is a poker aficionado who made the final table in a 2012 World Series of Poker tournament.
