The fourth meeting of the Cannabis Banking Working Group will be held July 7, 2017, at 9:00 AM in San Diego, California.

About the Cannabis Banking Working Group

On November 8, 2016, California voters passed Proposition 64, legalizing the use of recreational cannabis. However, the use, possession, and sale of cannabis remain a federal crime. The federal government still considers marijuana a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act. As a result, banks and other financial institutions generally refuse to provide services to cannabis businesses.

To solve this problem, State Treasurer John Chiang has convened the Cannabis Banking Working Group (CBWG). The working group, made up of representatives from law enforcement, regulators, banks, tax authorities, local government and the cannabis industry, is charged with finding practical and timely ways to address the state-federal conflict.
