SAFE Banking Stripped from COMPETES 
 
After weeks of cannabis industry hope for passage of the SAFE Banking Act, Congressional leaders--at the insistence of Republicans-- have removed SAFE banking language for the likely-to-pass America Competes bill.  Rep. Ed Perlmutter(D-CO)--the 6 year sponsor of SAFE-- again asked why the Senate has been unable to deal with this bill for 3 years.  "In the wake of the Senate’s inaction, people continue to be killed and businesses continue to be robbed," said Perlmutter, who is retiring this year.   "I will continue to push for SAFE to be included in COMPETES, other legislative vehicles, or for the Senate to finally take up the standalone version of the bill which has been sitting in the Senate for three and a half years," he added.  An recent analysis from U.S. Treasury department estimates, only about ten percent of all banks and roughly four percent of all credit unions provide services to licensed cannabis-related businesses. A SAFE-Plus standalone bill is under discussion-- adding some provisions of Rep. David Joyce's HOPE Act(including national expungements) -- but nothing will be advanced until COAO is filed by leader Sen Chuck Schumer(D-NY).  With the clock running down to a fall deadline for legislation, another long-shot push could attempt a lame-duck session passage.

Mace Out Polls Despite Cannabis Attacks                    Open in Your Browser for Images
SC's Mace Wins Primary; SRA Pushes On -- Attacked by her opponent for her pro-cannabis work-- first-term Congresswoman Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) survived the June 14th primary challenge, and will likely be re-elected in November.  As author of the SRA (States Reform Act) Mace fought backlash from South Carolina's Republican party, Donald Trump, and opponent Kate Arrington, who demanded that Mace "get a drug test."  But U.S. Cannabis Council executive director Steve Hawkins says the contest-- in deep-red S.C. shows "politicians who bet against reform and use cannabis as a punchline do so at their own peril,"  adding  "Arrington thought GOP primary voters would abandon Mace over cannabis reform, but that's an outdated playbook.   Cannabis reform enjoys growing and bipartisan support across the nation," said Hawkins.
         Charleston businessman and boyfriend Patrick Bryant asked Mace(who said yes) to marry him during the Spring campaign, making this her third marriage. Following up on his luxury cigar venture in S.C., Bryant is also the founder of "Shine Papers," a 24-karat gold rolling paper.  Mace says she became a champion or medicinal MJ after it helped her heal from a teenage rape.  Prospects for a Washington hearing on her SRA bill remain  elusive.  See her victory comments at:

PBS host and global travel guru Rick Steves has actively worked for MJ legalization.  Now, in his role as chairman of NORML, Steves has committed $100,000 of his own funds for a major matching fund drive.Steves wrote this week:   "Prohibitionist groups across the country are fundraising and spending money to defeat any pro-marijuana ballot initiatives and also to try to knock out our legalization-supporting allies in Congress. These regressive and reactionary forces are working to roll back civil liberties across our country. And I can’t just stand by.  So, I’m putting my money where my heart is. And we need your help too. 
       
Here’s the deal: I’ll match all donations up to $100,000 - so your donation to NORML will have double the impact in our fight to take the crime out of the marijuana equation. If you can help out too, I know we can pass legalization in several more states this fall."

        And there’s more! When you send NORML a donation of $100 or more, I’ll personally send you a copy of my newest book, On the Hippie Trail. (It’s a 180-page journal of my 1978 trip from Istanbul to Kathmandu when I was just 23)      Find the NORML donation page at:  https://bit.ly/3PWV4Ko

CHORUS FOR SAFE PASSAGE-- Unlike the MORE act passage on April 1,  the best chance for action is pushing for passage of the SAFE Act--providing safe harbor for MJ banking services. Washington state treasurer Mike Pellicciotti(above, left) ventured to Congress last month to urge passage to help stop the horrific outbreak of robberies and dispensary killings in his home state.  Others like the American Bankers Association, Scotts Miracle Grow and staff for sponsor Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) also presented their urgent appeal for positive action in the Senate.  More TV reports at KING-TV: https://www.king5.com/article/news/politics/pot-shop-robberies-cannabis-banking-bill/281-4418aef5-04ec-4516-adbf-1e09c29fafa8

             "We can no longer have the industry without access to banking when billions of dollars are changing hands in cash each year,” Pellicciotti wrote in a letter to his fellow state Treasurers. Most recently, the House passed the bill 222-210 as part of the America COMPETES Act, sweeping legislation to bolster America’s competitiveness with China, among other things.  However, when the America COMPETES Act went to the Senate for a vote, the SAFE Banking Act was stripped out of it. So now, the two houses of Congress will settle on a final version of the bill, which Pellicciotti hopes will contain the SAFE Banking Act. Coverage from KING-TV Seattle:
