re: Help Wanted: Need Banker Willing to Deal With Marijuana Business
Yes very good point Nate. And the two states that have legalized it are very serious about keeping it legalized and getting legitimate financial services providers for their legal marijuana businesses. The two Congressional representatives who are introducing the legislation I mentioned are from Colorado and Washington. Makes sense on their part: they partially legalized it so they could tax it to begin with!

Of course, this opens up the opportunity for a new entrant... and if more states legalize marijuana, that new entrant could be sitting on a gold mine.
