Quote:Republican and Democratic senators on Wednesday renewed their drive to make banking easier for marijuana-based businesses in those U.S. states where the drug is legal, undeterred by signals from the Trump administration about maintaining tough marijuana restrictions nationally.

The eight senators, who spanned the political spectrum from libertarian-leaning Republican Rand Paul to liberal Democrat Cory Booker, introduced the bill to block federal banking regulators from somehow pushing a financial institution to stop serving a state-sanctioned marijuana business or the businesses’ landlords or lawyers.

The government would also not be allowed to give banks incentives to cut off the businesses.

While marijuana is legal for medicinal or recreational use in 44 states, the federal government still considers it an illegal and highly dangerous drug.

All we would of had to do is give bankers a cut? Why didn't anyone say something sooner?

It treats pain without opioids, relieves depression, sleep aid, improves memory, kills cancer. The pharmaceutical companies have been paying congress to keep it illegal since the 1970's when their own covered up research showed what it could do.
Big Pharma could not patent it.
Since them they've come up with hundreds of drugs that kill people.

A friend of mine died from Oxy not long ago. Took one before bed and never woke up. Bud would have saved his life.
