Mr. Dickerson is a lawyer by trade and licensed in 6 states. His nationwide law practice involves representing clients in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, and dietary supplement industries and ensuring compliance with guideline sand laws enforced by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Department of Justice (DOJ). Through the over twenty‐five years of practicing law, Dickerson has observed many of the obstacles and failures companies within the pharmaceutical and dietary supplement encounter and is able to advise clients how to avoid these mistakes. He has been representing hemp farmers and dietary supplement manufacturers since 2014, when the first Farm Bill allowed for limited participation in the cultivation, extraction and manufacturing of hemp. He successfully navigated farmers, extractors, laboratories and manufacturers through the murky and always moving legal landscape in the past five years. Many of his clients in the healthcare and pharmacy industries know of his experience and work in the hemp industry and utilize Dickerson for their own development of hemp and cannabinoid products for their own healthcare practice and pharmacies.
Through his legal representation and owning his own ranch, for which it is growing hemp to then be extracted by SME, Dickerson has been asked to participate or be a member of many organizations. The Florida Agricultural Commissioner, who is in charge of overseeing the hemp program in the state of Florida, asked Dickerson to accept, which he did, the appointment to the Hemp Advisory Committee for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDAC). Dickerson serves on this committee to advise the Commissioner and FDAC as to the trends and legal and regulatory needs of the hemp industry in Florida. Dickerson also currently is a board member of The Florida Hemp Council and is regularly consulted on by members as to hemp and product development advice. After acting as counsel in the hemp industry and with Florida legalizing the cultivation, extraction and manufacturing of hemp in 2019, Dickerson sought out others to develop the SMH vertical integration model. His clients have also been excited about the ability to have a product line which can track the quality of the soil, hemp plant, and the eventual oil to use in their products.
