Federal Action

In the beginning of this current year, a Congressional Democrat has issued a proposal that outlines step-by-step plan to make marijuana legal at the federal level. In 2018, the industrial hemp cultivation increased by three times of that in 2017. Hearings are also being conducted to address business banking for legal cannabis business owners. The difficulties accessing traditional banks makes the business on of all-cash transactions. This is dangerous because those businesses become targets for break-ins and robberies.

Investing Assets

The lack of banking access also means investing cannabis assets is difficult. This is also the case for investors who choose to invest in crypto-currency. Navigating non-traditional investments, re-investing some of those assets, and adhering to reporting regulations for tax purposes can be overwhelming. Some companies, such as Plouton Capital, specialize in helping people invest in new and modern opportunities.

Once that finally happens, traditional investors will no longer be hesitant about financing start-up companies, support services, and logistic companies that grow, process, and distribute cannabis. Daring investors who get involved in the industry now may realize higher gains than those who wait.
