States continue to encourage the cannabis industry, while the federal government maintains that all cannabis-related conduct is illegal. With such untapped potential and an opportunity for business, events are moving rapidly in this industry including the licensing of hemp, and even more changes can be expected in this coming year.

Join Ballard Spahr Anti-Money Laundering attorneys as they discuss if there is room for compromise, if the cannabis industry can gain access to the traditional financial system, and what the path ahead looks like. Key takeaways will be:

  • The current federal and state cannabis regulatory and enforcement landscape
  • Hemp and its licensure under the 2018 Farm Bill
  • Suspicious Activity Report filings
  • Proposed SAFE Act of 2019
