Published on December 21, 2021

On December 22nd, CRB Monitor's Steve Kemmerling spoke with Hedgeye's Howard Penney regarding the on-going the federal legislative landscape for cannabis and cannabis-banking. 

Listen HERE.

Cannabis has moved to a Tier 1 policy issue in DC and many Democrats, Republicans, and Independents are clamoring for reform. This powerful combination has never been seen in a prohibition era, but will that mean we will see some form of Cannabis legalization happen before the 2022 mid-terms or a 2023 (or later) event? Will it happen under the current administration?

Key Points Covered

  • Why SAFE failed and what is the likely next move?

  • How can financial institutions can create cannabis policies and procedures to more effectively reflect today's market and regulatory realities without leaving undue risk or opportunity to change.

  • Why are JP Morgan and other Large Financial institutions increasing enforcement around Cannabis now?

  • Is this a move because the big banks know Legalizations is coming?

  • Expectations for incremental legalization in 2022?
