Are all hemp customers suspicious?

Answered by: 

Question: 
Do I have to file a SAR on all hemp businesses?
Answer: 

No. Hemp is no longer a Schedule I controlled substance under the CSA, financial institutions are not required to file a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) on customers solely because they are engaged in the growth or cultivation of hemp in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. You would however file a SAR if the activity was unusual and suspicious.
