Marijuana banking meeting raises hopes in Colorado


The inability of marijuana businesses to legally use banking services has been a problem in Colorado for years. But with recreational sales slated to start on January 1, the issue takes on even greater urgency — hence, the noteworthiness of a closed-door meeting last week in Washington, D.C., involving a Treasury Department group.
Can a solution be found in the next couple of weeks? Hard to say — but two local industry representatives underscore the importance of finding one. Denver Westword has the rest.
