FREE Webinar - Changing Tides: Lobbying on Cannabis Issues in the Biden Administration


With Democrats now in control of the White House and Congress, the odds for federal legalization and regulation have never been better. Previous industry lobbying has mainly focused on cannabis debt rescheduling under the Controlled Substances Act, but the inability to remit cannabis proceeds or deduct business expenses (due to federal illegality) has hampered the development of the industry in the meantime. And with the federal government taking immediate action to recover from the COVID-19 epidemic, cannabis companies should be part of America’s economic recovery. Cannabis legalization, banking, taxes, and COVID-19 relief are on the table for lobbying the industry, which, given the country’s current political power, offers solid opportunities for realistic reform.
