Marijuana Banking


While the use of marijuana is legal in some form in the majority of states in the country, It is not legal with respect to federal laws. Banks, whether they are federally chartered or state chartered, are all regulated by the feds, which means they have to follow federal laws. It makes for a messy business when it comes to how, when and with whom legal marijuana businesses can bank. Arizona PBS Producer Allysa (Ah-lisa) Adams found out that in Arizona, where medical marijuana is legal, businesses are struggling to figure out how to handle the money.
