PureVision’s biorefining process converts biomass (renewable non-food plants like wheat straw, corn stalks and industrial hemp) into value-added products and commodities. Since 1999, PureVision has developed and patented technologies using its Continuous Countercurrent Reactor (CCR) equipment (referred to as “the PureVision Technology”) to rapidly convert non-food biomass into three primary value-added products: 1) Pulp for producing a wide variety of personal care, building, and paper products; 2) Lignin to produce chemicals, adhesives, coatings, composites, and plastics; and 3) Sugars for producing nutritional supplements, sweeteners, beverages, chemicals, and plastics.

Cannabis Compliance Issues.

The multifaceted cannabis plant will be presented in the context of the rapidly changing and many, often conflicting FDA, DEA and state laws relating to industrial hemp products and extracts (CBD), medical and recreational marijuana and their derivatives.

He also served as a project manager for a top 20 global bank, where he led several regulatory and audit remediation projects, and consulted on the enhancement of existing documentation and record retention. Before entering the field of BSA/AML, Joe held leadership positions within various risk management disciplines, including vendor due diligence, fraud prevention, and corporate investigations. He is co-founder of Illinois State University’s bitcoin club, provides pro bono financial regulatory advisory services to Rotary International service projects, and is a passionate advocate of digital currency and access to financial services for the unbanked.

He graduated from Northeastern University, College of Criminal Justice in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts.

Why banks are high on compliance, and you should be too.

Can’t get banked? Lost your bank account? Yup, it’s AML alright. For legalized marijuana, like bitcoin companies, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find a bank willing to talk, let alone establish a sustainable banking relationship. Government regulators continue to raise the bar on AML and consumer protection, applying pressure on traditional and non-traditional financial institutions. We’ll examine the strategies deployed by banks to “de-risk” cannabis companies, and the compliance counter-measures you can deploy. Our discussion will conclude with a detailed examination of bitcoin as a potential solution.

Local Government Regulation of Industrial Hemp in Colorado

Describe the basic legal framework under Colorado state law for the regulation of industrial hemp. This framework appears to reserve the power to regulate industrial hemp exclusively to the state. Yet a number of local governments around Colorado have attempted to either prohibit or regulate industrial hemp cultivation and related activities, primarily by means of their power to control land use through zoning, but occasionally involving other police powers of local governments. Some efforts by local government standing direct conflict with state law, giving rise to questions about the nature and extent of the authority of local governments to regulate industrial hemp.

The Elephant And The Blind Men

Since it's inception and application, regulators have puzzled over how to treat bitcoin. The law was simply not built to handle the novel technology and, in the absence of applicable black letter and case law, various regulatory agencies have grappled with different interpretations. Thus, the current legal terrain can be difficult to navigate for actors engaged or invested in the virtual currency space. The new wave of "blockchain technology" has spawned interest from banking institutions and entrepreneurs alike. This presentation will briefly outline regulatory interpretation from finCEN, The IRS, the SEC, the CFTC and various State laws. It will examine the current legal climate: theDAO, Bitfinex and how alternative companies may legally utilize bitcoin.
