Summary: House passes Marijuana Banking Bill with bipartisan support, amid uncertain prospects in Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — With all of the other news of Ukrainian interference in the 2020 election, a bipartisan effort by the House of Representatives passed the Marijuana Banking Bill, on the same day that Juul suspended all of its advertising in the United States.

The passage of the Marijuana Banking Bill is one more step in the argument that unlike regular americans, corporations like the fortune 500 company Constellation BrandsA-B InBev, and Curaleaf will no longer have to pay their distributors in bags filled with C-notes and double sawbucks.

In an earlier posting on this blog, this author expressed concern for the Chairman of the SEC and whether he was sitting on pins and needles about a potential forthcoming indictment. Finally, the crowdsource funding for Jay Clayton’s criminal defense fund has officially shuttered its doors, and rumors abound that the funders will be asked to re-name it the William Barr Criminal Defense fund.

There may be a time in the not-so-distant future where we will see the President of the United States sign another kind of Green New Deal, with an executive order proudly displaying the official seal of the United States along with the words:

Free Billy Barr.
Free Rudy G.
Free Pot.

Fact check this all you want Nicole Wallace, but states and municipalities vote GREEN long before they ever go Red or Blue. Do not be surprised when you see the menu for the first post-Barr state dinner, and Mexican President Lopez Obrador ordering the THC-infused tacos and a CBD infused Coca Cola®.
