Big dilemma: Banks won't take money that smells like marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
SEATTLE -- Imagine setting up a multi-billion dollar legal business without using a bank? That's what our state is facing as it wrestles with legalizing a marijuana industry.
It's a serious dilemma that puts our state on conflict with federal law. The problem? Money that smells like pot won't fly in the banking industry.
Cash has an interesting quality -- it absorbs smells. So if it's kept anywhere near marijuana, you'll have problems taking it to the bank. 
"I guarantee you that you are going to talk to the bank manager and that's not a comfortable situation to be in," said John Davis.
Davis knows that first hand. He's had his business checking, and credit card accounts shut down once the banks found out he runs a West Seattle medical marijuana access point. Banks don't anything to do with pot.
"Everything I do here has to be cash, which makes it more attractive to theft which is why my store is built like a bank on steroids," Davis said.

Grandaddy Purple (GDP) - Indica

Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because it's such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.
