The Cans and Can’ts of Cannabis
Michigan’s cannabis industry may still be in its infancy but when we combine lessons learned from early adopters like Colorado with the critical accounting and tax compliance issues of today – we can gain vast insights in this emerging practice area. Evaluate the landscape in legislation, product and consumer trends and the outlook for banking as you get your questions answered and receive a copy of Mr. Seigneur’s recently released white paper.

Considerations & Challenges (Accounting & Auditing credit)
Legalized cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. making this one attractive market for clients. However, as a Schedule 1 controlled substance on the federal level, CPAs and firms contemplating services to the cannabis industry should consider the applicable risks and the elements involved in this line including attestation and peer review requirements. Our panel of CPAs reviews and discusses the challenges.

Seed to Sale: Cannabis in Michigan
Take a macro view of Michigan’s cannabis industry with insight from the state’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA). We look into common issues in licensure and how you can navigate the process going forward before digging into the seed to sale system, all with the CPA’s point of view in mind.

Michigan’s Recreational Marijuana Law: What Every Business Should Know
From an HR standpoint, the rapid evolution of Michigan’s cannabis legislation and industry may have left employers struggling to keep up. A socially savvy and connected workforce combined with ongoing regulatory changes are things that your business must take in to account. Review recreational marijuana law from a staffing/business perspective, focusing on employer rights and written policies for Michigan today.
