Alaska: Help us support SB 27!
We are proud to report that yesterday evening, the SAFE Banking Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives by an overwhelming vote of 321 to 101. Now it is onto the Senate. A similar bill died in the upper body last year, but with the change in party control, its prospects appear bright. But we need to get to work.
(WASHINGTON)- Late last night, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Secure And Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act which provides banking and financial service access to marijuana-based businesses. The bill passed by a vote of 321 to 101.
AB 45 and SB 235 would allow the distribution and sale of hemp CBD as a food, beverage, and dietary supplement (subject to labeling requirements) and would make clear that a product is not adulterated or misbranded due to the inclusion of hemp. These bills have been in the making for two years and are among the Roundtable’s highest legislative priorities. California Hemp Supporters are encouraged to use our State Action Center to urge state legislators to support AB 45 and SB 235.
