As the majority of U.S. states now have some form of legal cannabis program, and cannabis reform is being debated at the federal level, it’s critical for financial institutions to stay on top of the legal and regulatory landscape around cannabis banking — whether they are currently offering services to the industry or not. 

To provide banking leaders with a consolidated and highly-informative overview of the most important changes taking place, we are hosting the complimentary webinar, “Cannabis Banking: Summer Legal and Regulatory Update.”

Hosted by Green Check experts, with input from federal examiners and top law firms, this one hour event covers the following topics:

  • The status of federal legalization efforts:
    • CLIMB Act
    • MORE Act
    • SAFE Banking
    • States Reform Act
    • Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act (CAOA)
  • State updates: legalization, expansion, growth
  • Recent comments from the examiner community
  • Current risks for financial institutions serving cannabis-related businesses
  • Opinions on how the compliance obligation may change with broader legislation
  • How to future-proof a cannabis-banking program

Additionally, this event incorporates question breaks throughout to answer the questions most relevant to your institution.
