Mark GoldFogel | IWorkForCannabis.com & 4th Corner Credit Union

Next to tax code 280E, banking is the biggest nightmare in the cannabis industry.

As banking is Federally regulated and cannabis is Federally illegal, the process of purchasing cannabis with electronic funds (credit cards) or paying bills by check provides the very transaction validation that is incriminating and critical to meet guidelines.
There are some financial institutions openly supporting the industry. In fact it my be punny to say the industry is half-banked. But each state has had different success in supporting the industry.
In this talk, I will explain the paradox of banking, why it works better on some states than others and some suggestions to work through and around the banking paradox.


BIOGRAPHY:

“A free spirit” - says Mark Goldfogel’s mom.

Mark Goldfogel is a self-confessed nerd who published software at the age of 17. He has held management positions at John Deere Corporation and director positions at ADP before opening a technology consulting company in Telluride, Colorado. Mark co-founded MJ Freeway, the cannabis industry’s first “Seed to Sale” point of sale system and then went on to become CEO and co-founder of C4EverSystems, the industry’s first cash management system. Mark currently is EVP Industry Relations for The Fourth Corner Credit Union, the first state chartered institution whose field of membership includes a common interest in cannabis and hemp. Mark is dedicated to helping humanity understand the benefits and responsibilities associated with this important plant.
Mark Goldfogel was an original architect of Seed to Sale Tracking and founded and sold MJ Freeway and C4EverSystems, two technology startups in the cannabis sector. He twice has accomplished the most difficult feat in the industry, exit! He was also instrumental in The Fourth Corner Credit Union which is leading the legal fight to allow banking for the cannabis industry. He consults full time and has helped launch numerous startups as CEO of IWorkForCannabis.com.

Entrepreneur Experience.

MJW Enterprises 1985-1992. Technical Consulting, developing, and software training. Clients included ATT, Atari, Mikey Miller, David Pollock. Sole proprietor.
Wonder-Dog Corporation - 2002-2014. Technical Consulting. Telluride based high end technical consulting. Sold to support MJ Freeway.
Web-Dogs - 2006- sold 2010. WebDogs.com is a web development company that is now one of the leading companies in the heart of Silicon Valley. Sold to support MJ Freeway.
MJ Freeway 2010 - Current. Sold 33% founder equity in November 2013 to avoid personal bankruptcy. I maintain no equity or other interest or responsibility for this company.
C4EverSystems.com - 2013- Current. Sold founder equity in 2017. Banking hardware integration systems for the cannabis industry.

Of these companies...
I named all but one and renamed The Fourth Corner to 4CCU, which we will change when we win our court case and open. At that time, I will have named all of them.
Five of these businesses were able to get to cashflow positive without outside investors!
None of these businesses went bankrupt.
Four of these businesses are operational today. One hasn’t opened yet.
Three businesses represented cannabis industry firsts.

Business currently based in San Jose.

David Rodman
David Rodman

Rodman Law Group | Attorney At Law

Business, Cannabis, Cryptocurrency, Securities, IP Law

therodmanlawgroup.com

Dave Rodman is a Colorado native and was lucky enough to grow up in Aspen. Mr. Rodman founded the Rodman Law Group in 2014 in response to what he saw as a lack of sophisticated corporate/business law firms (i.e. cannabis firms that didn’t grow out of criminal or public policy based practices) serving the cannabis industry, and has been tirelessly advocating for his clients, pushing for more equitable and transparent industry regulations, and facilitating complex multinational transactions ever since.
As an attorney with an extremely wide range of clientele, he has truly learned to expect the unexpected. Mr. Rodman’s unique background in finance, securities, intellectual property, and corporate law has given him an incredibly diverse set of tools to deploy on behalf of his clients. These skills coupled with the “unteachable” experience that can only be gained by successfully starting a company and nurturing it from a start-up all the way until it is profitable are what distinguishes Mr. Rodman from the average cannabis attorney. It is Mr. Rodman’s legal knowledge and his entrepreneurial spirit that allow him to craft optimal solutions to each client’s specific legal, business, and regulatory needs. Mr. Rodman does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to the law.
Mr. Rodman has provided counsel to a broad range of clients including small businesses, large corporations, bars/night clubs, cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, and stores/dispensaries, industrial hemp ventures, international investment groups, musicians, private equity companies, music venues, cryptocurrency and blockchain projects, and venture capital firms. Mr. Rodman is licensed to practice law in Colorado and Washington State and advises clients all over the world, he currently has clients in Canada, Thailand, Singapore, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic.

David Rodman will be participating in the legal panel during CCC2017.

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.

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.

Manny Perez

Manny Perez holds elective office. As New York State politicians go, he is an all around decent guy! The first things colleagues and constituents notice about him is that he is ethical, principled, has a backbone, and is compassionate for the causes he believes in.
Manny wears other hats. In one role, he guides an ocean freighter as founder and co-director of CRYPSA, the Cryptocurrency Standards Association. With the possible exceptions of Satoshi Nakamoto and Andreas Antonopoulos, Manny knows more about Bitcoin than anyone. awildduck.com
