Another step to legalize cannabis in the U.S. has been in the form of the MORE (Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement) Act. This act has the potential to decriminalize the drug if it is passed, it was introduced in May 2021 in the US House of Representatives. The legitimization will not only create a lot of job opportunities but will also benefit industries like transportation, finance, food, etc.

Various banks provide loans to marijuana businesses and small- and large-scale production and processing industries which will bolster the growth of the legal cannabis market. However, federal banks still shy away from giving out loans or securing banks that give loans for businesses because marijuana is still not federally legal. The stringency around promoting businesses for recreational purposes comes with a risk of possible charges of aiding and abetting and other criminal felonies, this however could change if the government legalizes marijuana at the federal level.
