420 with CNW — Top IRS Official Reveals Cannabis Banking Reform Can Ease Tax Organization’s Work

Marijuana businesses have been unable to access financial services such as deposit accounts, cashless payments and loans since legal sales began in America. This is mostly due to the controversial plant's classification as a Schedule I controlled drug, and it has had wide-ranging consequences on both cannabis businesses and federal authorities. Players in the cannabis space are forced to transact on a cash-only basis, increasing their chances of robberies and making it difficult to account for and pay taxes. Furthermore, federal authorities, the IRS specifically, don't often receive taxes that are due, and when they do, it is usually in…

420 with CNW — California Cannabis Seizures Skyrocket Despite Legalization

The illicit cannabis market has proven to be quite resilient. Although the assumption had been that once states start legalizing the controversial plant, consumers would ditch the black market for legal pot, that’s not how things have turned out.

In California, for instance, the illicit market is estimated to generate $8 billion per year while the legal market makes around $4.4 billion annually. As such, authorities in California, which features the most lucrative cannabis industry in the country, have stepped up their efforts…
