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. 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?

  6. 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?

  7. 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!
