Is It Getting Easier For Pot Companies To Open Bank Accounts?

Thanks to it cannabis’ increasing legality, it’s becoming easier for pot companies to open bank accounts. By Tim Kohut Perhaps one of the biggest handicaps the burgeoning cannabis industry faces is finding a viable solution to store and transfer their funds. Traditionally, marijuana businesses tend to run on cash because banks are, for the most part, hesitant to deal with companies whose product is still deemed illegal by the federal government. Nonetheless, as more and more states continue to legalize recreation cannabis (California, for example, is set to do so on January 1), viable banking options for the industry has...

Bermuda House Approves Marijuana Decriminalization

By Jon Hiltz On Friday, Dec. 8, marijuana lovers in Bermuda received an early Christmas present with the House agreeing to decriminalize small amounts of cannabis on the island nation.

Police will still be permitted to seize any amount of cannabis found, but once this amendment becomes law, 7 grams of cannabis or under will not be sanctioned with criminal prosecution. With that in mind, the Director of Public Prosecutions...

Submitted by Marijuana News An overwhelming majority of health care professionals who care for children with cancer would be willing to help those children get medical marijuana—though less enthusiastically if they happen to be among the providers who are actually eligible to provide it, found a new study.

Vermont will legalize Marijuana in early January, house speaker says

Submitted by Marijuana New A top Vermont lawmaker says the state could become the first in the U.S. to legalize marijuana through an act of lawmakers early next year. “It will be up for a vote in early January,” House Speaker Mitzi Johnson (D) said on Friday. “I expect that it likely will pass in early January.” In 2017, the state fell just short of enacting legalization.

Hydroponics companies expecting a flood of customers after marijuana is legalized
