Possible Changes to Federal Cannabis Laws and Effect on BSA/AML Programs

Changing political winds and the diminishing stigma surrounding cannabis has led U.S. lawmakers that historically restricted in Congress and criminalized the use and distribution of cannabis to reconsider those long held views. Recently, two bills were introduced, one in the House of Representatives entitled the SAFE Banking Bill and passed by the House in April 2021. A separate piece of legislation, still being drafted in the Senate, has been initially described as the Marijuana Decriminalization Bill.
