@2:40 Chuck Schumer sent a letter to Ranking and Committee members in the Senate to solicit input and guidance for a cannabis bill (CAOA) he’s looking to introduce in April. Todd Green weighs-in.
@4:49 Benjamin A. Smith also weighs-in, but echoes many analyst sentiments that the SAFE Banking amendment will probably get blocked from the COMPETES Act in conference, similar to how SAFE was block in the NDAA in December. Still thinks federal reform has a good chance of passing this year.
@6:04 Jushi Holdings CEO Jim Cacioppo felt earlier that SAFE Banking had a good chance of passing this year. Either way, the company is operating the same way it always has as the regulatory landscape plays out.
@7:12 Everybody understands how big SAFE Banking would be to the industry. Benjamin A. Smith discusses just one reason why implementation is so imperative.

@20:55 What is the message Jushi Holdings is communicating to investors during the trying times in U.S. cannabis, from a capital markets perspective?
