Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another letter from Progressive Secretary.

This letter supports campaigns by the American Bar Association, State Bankers Associations, legal cannabis businesses, and others. It asks the Senate to pass the SAFE (Secure and Fair Enforcement) Banking Act (The bill passed in the House on April 19, 2021, on a vote of 321-101).

Forty-seven (47) states and the District of Columbia — accounting for 97.7% of the U.S. population — have legalized cannabis for medical purposes or recreational use. As a result, financial institutions are in a difficult position. They want to serve the cannabis industry, and they don't want to violate federal law. The bill would provide welcomed relief.

We will send your email letters to your Senators
.

A legal, multi-billion dollar industry cannot safely do business in cash. We need the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act (H.R. 1996, S. 910).

This bill will remove the barriers between the legal cannabis industry and the banking industry. It will immediately make the legal cannabis industry safer by allowing them access to modern financial services to secure their capital.

So many states have legalized cannabis that it's time for the federal government to stop marginalizing these businesses. They're vital to local economies.

Pass SAFE now.
