Banks and financial services companies interested in serving the cannabis industry face a complex regulatory environment. Contradictions between existing federal law and guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, and the relative silence from the prudential regulators, have acted as a deterrent to many wishing to serve the industry, even though it has been legalized in many states. Yet with each passing day, more financial institutions are expressing an interest in serving cannabis merchants, and institutions that have been serving the cannabis industry are looking to expand their business exponentially. Before doing so, however, banks and others need to understand the current regulatory landscape and associated risks, their BSA/AML and related obligations, and the best way to manage these risks. Failure to do so can have several negative consequences, including civil or criminal enforcement actions.

This webinar is for those banks and financial services companies looking to serve the cannabis industry, as well as those that want to expand this business relationship. Similarly, it is for cannabis merchants looking to establish a banking relationship—by understanding the legal and regulatory requirements for banks, cannabis merchants can design and explain their own policies and procedures in a way that will inspire confidence in potential bank partners.

Speakers:
Michael J. Bresnick, Partner, Chair of the Financial Services Investigations and Enforcement Practice, Venable LLP
D. E. (Ed) Wilson, Jr., Partner, Banking and Financial Services Regulatory, Venable LLP

Modern Grower Interview with Cannabis Concentrate Company Precision Extraction Solutions

Shatter, wax and other concentrates represent one of the fastest-growing product lines in the cannabis market, but few people understand how high-end extractions actually take place. In the second installment of Modern Grower, series host Felix Fang (Sex + Munchies) crisscrosses the country to check out the top-level process and equipment for making the best concentrates available.

Felix starts the journey in Las Vegas with award-winning producer Moxie, whose concentrates regularly take the top prize at the Cannabis Cup. Moxie CEO Jordan takes our host through the entire process, from freezing buds to extracting cannabinoids, and Felix even lends a hand in smoothing out some shatter. From Sin City to Motor City, our host visits the Precision Extraction factory in Detroit to meet CEO Nick and learn about the high-tech PX1 extraction unit used by Moxie and other leading brands. The latest Modern Grower covers the entire process from seed to sale, offering a new appreciation for the skill and technology involved in crafting the best concentrates.
