This program will examine the most important pending Federal legislation focused on cannabis in 2020, and what changes to the industry their potential enactment might unleash. The presenter will examine the STATES Act, the MORE Act, and the SAFE Banking Act, and will take a “deep dive” into what passage of each - or all - of these bills could mean for current cannabis industry participants, as well as for the numerous outside companies, banks, and investors currently watching the cannabis industry from the sidelines.

Very well done
The course was fun and interesting.
It would have been preferable to teach the course from a neutral position, but it was otherwise a great course. Thanks!
It's an interesting new area. I was glad to learn a bit about it.
The presenter was excellent. Neutral presentation of the material.
Thanks. Really enjoyed learning from this course.
It was drier than I hoped but it is a CLE. Cannabis is a big issue on the legal horizon perhaps I was more focused on policy v law
Loved the overview, and the complexity of this topic. Thank you!
Solid presentation - a great amount of substantive info on relevant and pending Fed legislation in 1 hour.
Most informative and well crafted class on this site so far.
Very knowledgeable presenter i
It was hard to hear sometimes, although I had the volume at maximum., but that's understandable in this time. It didn't detract too much from program itself.
Very good! Thank you!
Very informative. Presenter is very knowledgeable.
Another relavant in the time of COVID lecture!
I thought the Zoom format worked really well, and very much appreciate that the presentation still went forward with everything going on! Very interesting material!
So timely and spot on.
Good information on a very volatile area of the law.
Thank you for offering this LIVE. In this COVID era, I would hope more states would forego their LIVE CLE requirements, but until they do, please offer more of these LIVE sessions. Thankfully, technology makes a LIVE presentation possible!
