Marijuana Tomorrow

Episode 85 - Cannabis Banking Makes Strange Bedfellows

December 9, 2021

This week we look at the latest in the ongoing fight to get SAFE Banking language into the National Defense Authorization Act and the strange bedfellows this political fight is causing. And then we turn our attention across the pond as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces a bizarre new crackdown on illicit drug users. And finally, we’ll look at San Francisco’s decision to suspend the city’s Cannabis Business Tax through the end of next year, in an attempt to stamp out illegal sales. Did one of the most progressive cities in the country just become accidentally libertarian?

We’ll be discussing these stories and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business...

As we like to say around here, “Everyone knows what happened in marijuana today, but you need to know what’s happening in Marijuana Tomorrow!
