If you have been denied payment with medical marijuana credit card processing at your local dispensary, you are not alone.
Many banks throughout the nation are closing their services to medical marijuana patient and the businesses that supply the medicine. Reasons being in quote ” We really have no choice as long as it’s illegal, especially illegal and unlawful activity as far as money- laundering is concerned”. Keep in mind fellow patients Medical Marijuana Is NOT Federally legal yet, even though States all over the nation have legalized Marijuana that is a local and state held law. These banks that your local dispensary’s are using to fund their business are being told by federal law makers and holders that they are not allowed to continue money laundering.
Medical Marijuana Credit Card Processing Illegal Under Federal Law
A quote from Treasury spokesman Andrew Williams “Wells Fargo & Co. and Bank of America Corp. are among U.S. lenders that have stopped opening new accounts for companies that provide medical marijuana due to cannabis consumption and distribution are illegal under federal law.
Barney Frank said in a telephone interview today ” It is wrong for the banks to be told by Treasury they cannot service clients the way they would service any other business.”
Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat and chairman of the House of Financial Services Committee, signed the letter with 12 Democrats and two Republicans, including Representatives Ron Paul of Texas and Dana Rohrabacher of California, where voters in November will decide whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
The true mouth of the people who have also signed the letter include Sam Farr, Pete Stark, Lois Capps, Brad Sherman, Linda Sanchez and Zoe Lofgren, all of California; Steven Cohen of Tennessee; Jose Serrano of New York; Raul Grijalva of Arizona; Donald Payne of New Jersey; and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin.
So we say thank you to all the hard working strong lobbyist and politicians who are fighting for our true freedom. Many more are and will join the battle on medical marijuana.
Stand up with millions of others, be recognized for your medical issues and medications. This is the only way to have a federal law change. Power of the People.
Why not use what earth gave us? Why not use another form of medication that works the same if not safer than what scientists are creating in a lab? I’ll tell you why. For instance, Earth has provided us human and animals marijuana naturally all over the world. Second, I have encountered hundreds if not thousands of normal hard working business owners, state workers, teachers, farmers, normal people that make this country survive and continue to advance in the modern society that use medical marijuana, not just for recreation, but a replacement of the chem lab pills that they were taking before. So many civilians that make this country don’t speak up about mmj because they are afraid of the punishment and be persecuted by law, A law that is made up to provide safety and help for us Americans.
So why would politicians rather have a scientist tell them Marijuana is the best and safest natural medicine on earth, yet have a company that makes medicine in a lab that is unsafe and has been proven to cause major harm to humans/ animals still be allowed to produce legally this fake medicine? These are questions that I/we the people have for the government, it’s up to them to look deep inside and find that answer. We will win the War on Medical Marijuana usage.
So remember always bring cash….
