(Cannabist) Marijuana business owners looking for banks willing to handle their accounts are finding resistance in the most unlikely place: their own industry.
Recent federal guidelines opened the door slightly between banking and marijuana — two industries kept apart by federal laws that still deem the drug illegal. But business owners in search of a bank account — for little more than a place to deposit wads of cash and pay employees — are finding it’s more an industry trade secret than they expected.
On one level, pot businesses with bank accounts are worried they could endanger what’s likely a precarious relationship simply by allowing its existence to be known.
On another, it’s a matter of good old-fashioned competition at work — survival of the fittest.
And those able to open bank accounts are in better shape than those who can’t, mostly because doing business becomes so much easier.
Even though porn is legal, it’s HELL to get a pay processor and you pay a LOT more for the privilege when you do find one. Most merchants pay 3-5%, adult content 15-30% or way high flat rates. Now that more states have decriminalized marijuana or have medical allowances, it’s still hard to have access.
And, it’s increasingly hard to subsist on cash.

When white children were misdiagnosed with autism they were usually told they had ADHD, but Mandell discovered that Black autistic children were told they had things like psychoses, mental retardation or selective mutism. This, along with the fear that Black parents have of reporting their child’s behavioral issues due to the fact that their children are removed from the home as a result more often, makes it hard for Black children with autism to get the treatment that they need.
my first diagnosis was a psychotic disorder btw

What turns me on? Ideas. I get wet at museums, used book stores make me flirty, long talks at cafes that blow my mind help me spread my legs.
Deal breakers? Gross politics.
