NYS DFS Guidance to Financial Institutions Servicing the Medical Marijuana Industry


Because of the quickly changing legal environment, obeying both federal and state rules is not easy.

The New York State Department of Financial Services circulated guidance to chartered financial institutions in the state. The NYDFS emboldened banks to work with marijuana-related businesses. This memo strengthened the state’s readiness to expedite growth within the industry. This white paper reviews New York’s legal cannabis landscape and how federal law and guidance is shaping it along.
