‘The Marijuana News Reform in Congress could be the answer to so many challenges we’re all facing in this country and around the world. Once Cannabis is completely legal to grow, consume, buy and sell across all borders, the landscape of our world could change for the extreme positive; environmentally, economically and through whole health wellness of course. Set the plant free and let our farmers grow!’ It’s time to push had on your congressperson! comments Darlene Mea CEO of HempingtonPost

The U.S. Congress always has been slow to act, but that’s been especially true for marijuana reform, which has been a stigmatized issue for decades.
As a result, cannabis companies have been waiting and hoping for years that Congress will take action to guarantee banking access to law-abiding marijuana businesses and ease the excessive tax burden from 280E.
Those hopes may actually be realized in 2019.
