Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s “Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act” is shaking up the cannabis market as it proposes cannabis’ removal from the federal list of controlled substances. The bill has a long way to go before passage through a polarized Congress, but if passed, the burgeoning market would accelerate due to new market opportunities. It is important to note that under this bill, states would still retain the right to prohibit cannabis sales and shipping cannabis products into states where cannabis is prohibited would still be federally illegal. However, federal cannabis legalization would allow retailers and producers access to bank services are insurance coverage options which are typically denied them. Clearly this is a boon for cannabis retailers and producers whose operational costs would be reduced and net revenue increased with better access to these services.
This piece of legislation symbolizes Americans shifting sentiments over the legalization of recreational and medical marijuana use.
