Cannabis Industry Information
The CBA realizes that many licensees have been approached about providing accounting services to cannabis-related industries. Many licensees have reached out to the CBA to determine if the CBA has issued a position statement on providing accounting services to the cannabis industry. Position statements are legal opinions. Because the CBA cannot issue legal opinions, no position statement will be issued on this topic.
