Houses Passes Bill Making it Legal for Banks to Work in Cannabis Industry

The moves comes as the House also takes up a bill that could see America catch up to Mexico and Canada on marijuana legalization.

They say that money doesn’t grow on trees, but that’s because cannabis isn’t a tree.

As our nation prepares to reopen its economy after a lengthy pandemic, there are many financial analysts out there who have been wondering aloud if cannabis or marijuana could be a powerful catalysts for fiscal stimulus.  The more potently psychoactive version of the plant is now either legal or decriminalized in a majority of US States, with cannabis, (diet weed, essentially), being federally legal as of this very moment.

In states where marijuana is legal, massive economic booms have occurred, which have in turn prompted other legislatures to take a look at adjusting their own laws.

One of the main issues in growing this cash-flush business has been the banking sector, on account of the fact that large national banks don’t wish to take on the liability of working within an industry that is under the thumb of federal criminality.

The House of Representatives is now looking to change that, and just in time to turbocharge our pandemic recovery.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday passed legislation that would allow banks to provide services to cannabis companies in states where it is legal, a step towards removing what analysts say is a barrier to development of a national industry.

Lawmakers voted 321-101 to approve the bill and send it to the Senate.

The bill clarifies that proceeds from legitimate cannabis businesses would not be considered illegal and directs federal regulators to craft rules for how they would supervise such banking activity.

Bankers around the nation have been clamoring for such a bill for some time, hoping to cash in on this green gold rush before it’s too late.

Both Canada and Mexico have federally legalized marijuana, leaving the USA as a laggard in western society.

Unvaccinated Students Corralled into Separate Pen at LA High School

This is just WILD.

Published

on

There have long been some very serious concerns about the way in which vaccinated people would treat unvaccinated folks here in the United States, and it’s a sad reality that some of even the more bizarre predictions have come true.

We’ve seen the unvaccinated among us ostracized, belittled, discriminated against, and segregated against, often with the backing of the government itself.

Now, at a charter school in Los Angeles, an incredibly poignant and stomach-turning facet of this prejudice has been put on display.

Parents and students at a Los Angeles charter school have filed a lawsuit to stop a vaccine mandate that allegedly prevented unvaccinated children from attending class.

The children said they felt “segregated” and “discriminated against.”

“Female students were segregated, harassed, and threatened with suspension just for trying to participate in their classes, and we will prove in court that this is unjust and unlawful,” Sharon McKeeman, founder of Let Them Breathe, a nonprofit organization that is representing the students and parents in a lawsuit against the school, told Fox News Digital on Sunday.

The situation was a dramatic one:

Let Them Breathe shared videos of the students protesting after New West Charter School allegedly refused to let them in when school reopened on Jan. 18, 2022. The organization claimed that the students were segregated “behind barriers.”

“We’re being refused of the right to attend school,” one student claims in a video. “We feel segregated and discriminated against,” adds another.

News of the situation was soon traveling throughout the Twitterverse.

The school has suggested that there are only six students who’ve refused to be vaccinated.

Liberal Host Says ‘I’m Over COVID’, Pushes Disobedience

We didn’t have this on our 2022 bingo card.

Published

on

Freud has often been summed up with the phrase, “sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar”.  But one liberal comedian now wants to sum up COVID with, “sometimes, enough is just enough“.

Left-leaning comedian and television host Bill Maher this week lashed out against lingering COVID protocols, even going so far as to glorify the idea of disobedience.

Bill Maher has said that he’s “over Covid” and that doctors shouldn’t tell people “just do what we say” in relation to how to handle the pandemic.

The comedian and HBO talk show host told Deadline in an interview that “I feel like Covid is still the dominant issue of our lives right now and it should not be anymore”.

The 66-year-old said he was “never scared” of Covid-19, but that he was “always scared of the reaction to it”.

And then…

“As this has played out that only proved to be more true for me,” Mr Maher, who contracted the virus in May of last year, told Deadline. “I’m sure many people feel different, but that’s me. It was never that virulent a threat, I thought, to people who were in good health.”

“We should, of course, protect the vulnerable, but it was mostly a disease of the very old, which every disease is a threat to, and people who have comorbidities, which mostly is due to lifestyle,” he added.

His harshest quips followed:

“I didn’t want the first vaccine,” he said. “We should not treat people unfairly who want to allow their own immune system to take care of the situation. But okay, I took one for the team.”

He went on to say that the medical establishment “don’t know a lot about anything”.

“We still don’t understand too much about how the human body works,” Mr Maher said. “So, don’t sit there in your white coat and tell me ‘just do what we say’. When have we ever been wrong? A lot is my answer. A lot. They drilled mercury into my teeth when I was a child. Now, of course, we don’t do that anymore, but do you really think in 50 years people will look back and say, ‘oh, yeah, we had it all figured out in 2022?’ No, they will be appalled at things we’re doing right now”.

Maher’s shift on COVID has been predated by some downright moderate discussions from the longtime liberal, leading many to wonder if he’s headed toward the dead center of the American political morass.
