    Cannabis Regulation
    at Federal Level

    The prohibition of marijuana is nearing the end. This is why it’s essential for discussions about a comprehensive and effective regulatory framework to happen. Any regulation ensures that your cannabis products move to the market according to policies that are in place for the following:

    • Products that require prescriptions.
    • Products used for nonmedical reasons will no longer be hampered by any legal restrictions.
    • To expand the vast opportunities within the marijuana industry.

    Consumer Safety
    and Vaping Products

    When you enter a smokeshop, your safety should be a crucial aspect. Moreover, if the cannabis industry aims to meet the requirements of regulation at federal level. The current vaping crisis is a cause for concern for you when you use marijuana. There are myths that have been circulating that fail to address the risks of vaping cannabis oil. For instance, a lot of people believe that vaping cbd has no health consequences compared to smoking it. Yet, there have been reports that vaping products have been linked to an increase in lung injuries. In addition, there is a growing concern from health experts about the increasing illicit market. This is why part of creating effective strategies requires licensing of smoke shops to be a prerequisite.

    Access to
    Banking Services

    The fact of the matter is that you need equal access to banking services when you are in the cannabis industry. But, this is still a struggle for many people. Fortunately, the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) is collecting signatures that should help to change things for the better. As it stands, your legally compliant cannabis business can’t do the following.

    • Accept credit cards
    • Run payroll
    • Acquire loans
    • Pay taxes
    • Write checks

    This means that the cannabis industry is open to these risks:

    • Money laundering.
    • National safety hazard.
    • Economic interference by preventing the U.S from keeping
      up with the commercial cannabis global market.

    UnfairTax Laws

    Did you know that the current tax laws impose different tax obligations for cannabis businesses when compared to other types of businesses?

    • Bookkeeping services
    • Investments that can benefit the local economy
