Posted By on April 24, 2016


Marijuana is legal in Colorado, but federal law makes banking nearly impossible for the cannabis industry. The result: a dangerous all-cash operation that requires armed guards and layers of security.

  1. pay me and I will provide security I got friends who would guard a spot where u can go and leave ur money for safe keeping :)

  2. Then stop trying to go to federal banks and open up a few private banks, which then money can be delivered to them by private security firms.

  3. CAN ANYONE PLEASE ANSWER THE QUESTION OF —- WHY DO WE NEED THE ( CORP(se)ORATE BUSINESS ) FEDERAL GOV'T??? WHAT DO THEY DO BUT F*CK WITH EVERYONE"S LIVES??? SERIOUSLY! IF ANYONE CAN INTELLIGENTLY ANSWER MY QUESTION, PLEASE DO SO!

    THERE IS A SERIOUS DISCLOSURE GOING ON REGARDING THE ALLEGED "CORPORATE BUSINESS" "GOVERNMENT" all tied into the BANKING INDUSTRY AND PRIVATE BUSINESS "FEDERAL RESERVE" … WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!! WAKE THE F*CK UP!!!!

  4. MONEY DOES NOT MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND — PEOPLE DOOO!!!!!!! MONEY IS JUST A REPRESENTATION OF HUMAN VALUE WHILE YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS TRADED ON THE STOCK MARKET AS A COMMODITY!!!! THAT"S TRUTH!!!!! WAKE UP!!!!

  5. When there is that much money in one place it does not even look real to me anymore

  6. It amazes me how they still make the hand over fist money they did when it was illegal. The price was a product of the involved risk – now there is no risk and they still can sell it at pre-legalization rates. If any one can grow it and sell it – how are these characters making out like bandits. If it can be grown in Colorado – can it be imported into Colorado from Mexico?

  7. I am also amazed by how long it is taking organized crime to start targeting these dealers. They move thousands every day from their shop to a hole in the ground some where which must contain millions. How long before some ones starts serious surveillance, tracking and attacking these locations?

  8. I thought I had problems!!  Wow, too much cash?  Feeling unsafe? Making too much money?  Having to buy safes and hire security guards to transport money, that is downright terrible.   I really do feel sorry for these struggling people, maybe I should set up a relief fund or special program for them since my problems are miniscule compared to theirs!! Pitching this BS to me so I should feel "sorry' for these modern day cowboys, or outlaws.  I assume this is priority 1 Alpha for this country, huh?  WOW, really!
