Cannabis consumers pay higher prices, and their favorite suppliers run the risk of robbery because the federal government treats banking legal cannabis dollars like banking heroin itself.

“We know the SAFE Banking Act has passed the House seven times. It’s never passed in the Senate, and now that there’s been a change in Congress, it remains to be seen how it’ll progress this time.”
