Question of the Week

  • QUESTION: Is a marijuana related business eligible to be an exempt person under BSA?

    ANSWER:

    The BSA examination manual states that a marijuana related business is ineligible under Phase II. However, FinCEN does offer guidance on the topic.

    See FinCEN’s Guidance: BSA Expectations Regarding Marijuana-Related Businesses, FIN-2014-G001, February 14, 2014. See also: FinCEN’s Guidance: BSA Expectations Regarding Marijuana-Related Businesses, FIN-2014-G001, February 14, 2014.
