    Colorado's legislators just passed a marijuana banking law. The Governor said he would sign it over the objection of the Colorado Bankers Association. Not too long ago, Attorney General Eric Holder proposed similar banking laws at the federal level, but no action has been taken yet. Kudos to Colorado once again for being ahead of the curve.

    I have to give the Governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, quite a bit of credit. Although he was personally opposed to legalization in Colorado, he said he would "enforce the will of the people."

    Pretty incredible to see a politician, much less a GOVERNOR, doing things that the people actually want him to. I like it :brow:

    For years, financial hassles have forced a multimillion-dollar industry to rely almost entirely on cash and to keep any bank accounts under hush-hush names because fed-fearing financial institutions are wary of doing business with state-legal pot shops. But dispensaries in Colorado are finally seeing a ray of hope, now that a marijuana banking co-op that received its charter from the state is moving forward with plans to open in the new year.

    Not a good pic of the bud above. It looks really dried out.
