In the U.S., Bitcoin Mom just found out that federal banks will close your account for investing in the cannabis industry. Could Bitcoin provide the solution?
Cannabis Is Basically Heroin at a Federal Level in the States
‘Bitcoin Mom’ Brooke runs a cannabis shop in Colorado called the Bud Depot. She just had her business bank account closed for investing in the cannabis industry. It seems that just about everyone can see the irony glaring off that statement–apart from the U.S. Federal banks, of course.
We just lost our business bank account because we invested in the cannabis industry. We’re accredited investors with excellent credit ratings. Doesn’t matter. Can’t touch cannabis because it’s a Schedule 1 drug (like heroin, meth & cocaine) according to US federal laws. Idiocracy
