VITI’s research addresses the climate in the U.S. that offers investor a factual overview as follows:
Trump’s attorney general, William Barr, has expressed support for pursuing a legislative fix for conflicting state and federal marijuana laws, testifying at a Senate hearing in August 2020 that he would prefer for Congress to pass something like Gardner’s bill instead of maintaining the status quo. The House passed an amendment to spending legislation in June 2020 that would protect all states with legal cannabis programs from federal intervention. The proposed laws would prevent interference from the U.S. Justice Department in states where marijuana is legal, protect cannabis industry employees from federal prosecution, and protect banks servicing cannabis companies from federal banking penalties. Gardner’s bill “to allow federal banking for cannabis companies a major move by the federal government” (Sept 12, 2020).
