Starting 2020 on a High Note: Cannabis-Related Banking in Wisconsin Explained

Marijuana is illegal in the state of Wisconsin for both medical and recreational use. However, neighboring states, including Illinois and Michigan, have recently passed laws to legalize it. How do you know you aren’t banking a cannabis-related business (CRBs) that operates in a neighboring state? Are you prepared if the laws change? With CRBs sitting at the top of bankers’ minds, senior consultants from Abrigo’s BSA/AML Advisory Services team tackle your burning questions about CRBs/MRBs. In this webinar, Andres Tapia, CAMS, GAMS, CFE and Kevin Gulledge, CAMS discuss all things cannabis, from the current state of cannabis laws to what bankers will need to know for 2020 and beyond. You will understand the recent updates to cannabis laws, learn ways financial institutions can be successful in banking these customers, and hear answers to user-submitted questions on cannabis and banking.

  • Updates on cannabis laws
  • How to successfully bank these customers
  • Common CRB banking errors and how to avoid them
