Will The Murky Marijuana Banking Picture Finally Get Clearer?

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, while testifying before Congress yesterday, Tuesday, February 26, 2019, explicitly acknowledged the uncertainty and tension surrounding the access of a company engaged in marijuana or marijuana-related business to banking because of conflicting state and federal laws.  When asked about the topic, the Chairman said, “I think it would be great to have clarity,” adding, “Financial institutions and their regulators and supervisors are in a difficult position with marijuana being illegal under federal law and legal under some state laws.”

Further, last week, the House Financial Services Committee made history by holding its first ever hearing on marijuana and financial services. Up for discussion at that hearing was a new draft of the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act.  Last year, Congress introduced the SAFE Act of 2017, which stalled and went nowhere.  Colorado Rep. Ed Perlmutter, a prime sponsor of the bill, has been introducing a version of this bill for almost six years, but has failed to get a hearing until now. This year, not only is the bill going to be discussed, but the bill is even more robust, specifically adding protections for ancillary businesses providing products and services to marijuana-related businesses.

As Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin made clear while testifying before Congress last year, he too would like to see marijuana businesses able to access banking services.  “I assure you that we don’t want bags of cash,” he said before a House Committee last year.  “We want to find a solution to make sure that the businesses that have large access to cash have a way to get them into a depository institution for it to be safe.”

Today, while 10 states and the district of Columbia have legalized recreational marijuana, marijuana remains illegal on the federal level, listed as a Schedule 1 drug, along with heroin and LSD.  And, while an increasing number of financial institutions are willing to bank marijuana and marijuana-related businesses, there still is a predominant, industry-wide reluctance to get involved, whether because of the added compliance that is required, or because of the unclear restrictions that are promulgated, by the Department of the Treasury.

    Client Alert UPDATE: President Trump Signs 2018 Farm Bill Into Law

    Dear Clients and Friends,

    Just one week after the 2018 Farm Bill decidedly pass through the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, President Trump signed the landmark bill into law today, December 20, 2018. The overhauled Farm Bill is the first piece of federal legislation which unambiguously removes specific permutations of hemp-derived cannabis containing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC the active ingredient that causes the psychoactive effect of marijuana, from the Controlled Substances Act and moreover, expressly prohibits states from interfering with interstate sale and transport of such products

    Client Alert: U.S. Senate and House of Representatives Approve 2018 Farm Bill

    The long-awaited resurgence of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, colloquially referred to as the 2018 Farm Bill, became more promising yesterday as its latest iteration received overwhelming bipartisan approval as it decidedly passed through the Senate on Tuesday, by a vote of 87-to-13, and easily passed through the House of Representatives, by a vote of 369-to-47. Now, the reality of the 2018 Farm Bill awaits the hand of President Donald Trump, who is expected to sign it into law before the end of the month.

    Most notable, the 2018 Farm Bill is set to legalize hemp, a plant that’s nearly identical to marijuana and is a key source of the highly popular health and wellness ingredient cannabinoid, or CBD. If signed into law, the 803-page Bill would be the most significant change to the Controlled Substances Act (the “CSA”) since 1971, which is illustrative of the federal government’s recognition that outdated federal regulations do not sufficiently distinguish between hemp, including CBD derived from hemp, and CBD derived from marijuana.

    In contrast to its predecessor, the voluminous 2018 Farm Bill expressly and unambiguously provides that the definition of “marihuana” under the CSA would be amended to exclude “hemp”, which, in turn, is defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” Succinctly, if signed into law, the 2018 Farm Bill would be the first piece of federal legislation that explicitly carves out certain permutations of CBD containing tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), the active ingredient that causes the psychoactive effect of marijuana, from the CSA.

    Against this backdrop, financial institutions that have been reluctant to establish relationships with hemp-related business because of the inclusion of “hemp” in the CSA’s definition of “marihuana” and the February 14, 2014 guidance from the Department of the Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, may now turn a new leaf and embrace the estimated $1 billion industry.

    Relatedly, and in furtherance of the federal government’s progressive initiative toward the proliferation of the rapidly increasing hemp market, the 2018 Farm Bill also places far-reaching limitations on the States’ abilities to prevent the transport of hemp across interstate commerce. Specifically, the 2018 Farm Bill states, in relevant part, that “No State or Indian Tribe shall prohibit the transportation or shipment of hemp or hemp products,” so long as such hemp or hemp products are produced in accordance with discrete guidelines set forth elsewhere in the 2018 Farm Bill.

    Notwithstanding, this monumental shift in cannabis reform should not be misconstrued as a blanket legalization of hemp at the state level. Conversely, the 2018 Farm Bill provides a roadmap for states and Indian tribes to become the “primary regulators” of hemp production by submitting “a plan under which the State or Indian tribe monitors and regulates” the production of hemp within its borders. In this regard, those interested in getting involved in the hemp industry, in any capacity, are cautioned to review the applicable state law, which may carry more stringent restrictions than the 2018 Farm Bill, as well as any other pertinent federal authority.

    Finally, it is worth noting that nothing in the 2018 Farm Bill implicates the status quo of marijuana or CBD derived from marijuana, both of which remain illegal under federal law. And while the legal landscape remains somewhat hazy, bipartisan agreement of the 2018 Farm Bill marks a long-overdue, massive step forward for the U.S. hemp industry.
