Last week, as NCIA wrapped up another successful Seed to Sale Show, we were vigilantly preparing for a historic hearing about the issue of cannabis banking and the SAFE Banking Act. This is an incredible milestone for our industry. If this bill passes, it would allow marijuana-related businesses in states with existing regulatory structures to access the banking system.
The Consumer Protection and Financial Institutions Subcommittee of the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services held this historic hearing about a draft bill that provides safe banking services for legal cannabis businesses. This was the first Committee hearing on stand-alone legislation that is a priority for our industry. Learn more about the hearing from NCIA’s Aaron Smith.
