The use of marijuana is legal, to some degree, in thirty-three states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico. Yet the possession, distribution or sale of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. This results in challenges for banking marijuana – is it even possible?
The NJBankers Marijuana Conference will feature experts with insight about marijuana and the cannabis industry.
Speakers include Paul Fishman, Former U.S. Attorney for the District of NJ and a partner with Arnold & Porter. Sessions will explore the regulatory and enforcement risks of banking marijuana, labor and employment issues, practical BSA/AML monitoring, and how technology can develop and enhance policies while tracking transactions.
Attend this seminar and learn how legalization will affect your bank even if you planned not to bank marijuana. CPE and CLE credits will apply.
