Bankers Associations From All 50 States Push Senate To Pass Marijuana Banking Reform As Part Of Large-Scale Bill

(SAFE) Banking Act is an “urgently needed, widely supported, bipartisan solution”

Banking associations representing all 50 states and one U.S. territory sent a letter to Senate leaders on Thursday, imploring them to include marijuana banking reform in a large-scale manufacturing bill that’s heading to bicameral conference.
