Are you up to date with federal and state laws and regulations related to the cannabis and marijuana industry?

Whether you are actively engaged with MRBs or just looking for new business opportunities, this dynamic webinar will have something for you.
  • Evaluate the current legal landscape of state and federal laws
  • Understand the potential impact of marijuana laws on multiple operational areas
  • Prepare a marijuana-related business (MRB) due diligence plan
  • Determine the proper alignment of policies and procedures
  • Assess the benefit of third-party industry expertise
  • Appreciate cannabis-related business best practices


The increasing acceptance of marijuana- and cannabis-related products, combined with flexibility within state legal systems, makes it absolutely essential for every financial institution to understand the myriad impacts this changing landscape can have on almost every element of business operations. From lending to deposit accounts and human resources to BSA, you need to understand the landmines and embrace the opportunities presented by this growing field.

Today’s shrinking margins and increased competition (including from fintechs) should have every institution considering expanded business lines or additional income sources and ways to serve your community. One thing that has not changed, however, is the need to perform a thorough risk assessment before embarking on any new adventures. This is especially true with the cannabis industry, as the landscape is continually changing, and more players continue to stream into the marketplace. Join veteran financial services attorney David Reed as he gives a timely overview of the current cannabis industry as it relates to financial services.


This informative session is designed for board members, senior executives, managers, compliance staff, lending staff, deposit account managers, business development personnel, internal auditors, and anyone involved with commercial account activity or marijuana-related businesses.
