This seminar will discuss the following: the reasons banks don’t want to have accounts for related cannabis businesses, why banks ask for so much information, and what the future of banking and cannabis may be (bills in Congress). Interspersed is the Farm Act, which legalized industrial hemp, which looks surprisingly like cannabis, and has been testing “hot” (over the 0.3% THC) in Hawaii.  So now farmers are facing the same problems as the medical dispensaries.
