Banking Woes Continue for Cannabis Businesses in Legalized States in the U.S.

Just this past week a U.S. congressional committee decided to reject a new measure that would have protected federally licensed banking institutions from strict fines and penalties for opening bank accounts for businesses related to the cultivation, processing, manufacturing, and sale of cannabis industry. One of the major issues inhibiting a legitimate industry in legal cannabis states is that cannabis remains an illegal drug by the DEA under the Controlled Substance Act. This declares cannabis as illegal under federal law.

Though businesses in certain states like California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado operate legally under their states laws, banking institutions work closely in conjunction with the Federal Reserve and Department of Treasury which have forbidden them to bank their money. At this point Banks refuse to open cannabis businesses bank accounts in fear of being shut down.

This has caused those within the sector to work solely with cash-only operated business. Yet, somehow cannabis businesses still have to pay their state and federal taxes, conduct payroll for their employees, and maintain some sort of accounting system. How can business owners hope expect to run a legitimate enterprise if they can’t keep their bank accounts open?
