Shifting public sentiment on cannabis is bringing the U.S. ever closer to significant federal legislation that would allow financial services firms to work with the cannabis industry. Recent examples include the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, which enjoys bipartisan support and the backing of the Biden administration. Such legislation would provide regulatory guidance for banks and protect insurers, while allowing cannabis businesses to hold bank accounts, transfer money, and issue payments.

Speakers will address the opportunities and challenges involved in working with growers and dispensaries, as well as early-stage investors and others.
