BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Bellingham’s two pot retail stores are encouraged by the House vote on guidelines for banks to work with marijuana businesses.

John Evich with Top Shelf Cannabis says it’s a win for I-502.

 

Aaron Nelson with 2020 Solutions says they are cautiously optimistic.

 

The U.S. Treasury Department made guidelines for banks so they can work with pot businesses without fear of federal money-laundering charges.
