A growing number of states are legalizing the medicinal and nonprescription use of marijuana. Nevertheless, the legalized status of cannabis at the state level conflicts with the federal Controlled Substance Act, causing significant legal risk, business uncertainty, and operational challenges for cannabis producers and distributors, as well as their accountants. This webinar will explore how CPAs serving cannabis industry clients can actively manage their business and legal risks through the use of client acceptance and retention criteria, engagement letters and related documentation, engagement planning, staffing and execution, and an understanding of applicable regulations.
