Event description

Description

Cash is disappearing. While we may use it for small ticket items—coffee and snacks—how many still use it for a $30, $50, or $100 purchase? Few. But there is an alternative world where cash remains prevalent: it is the world of legal cannabis. More than 30 states have legalized cannabis for medical or recreational purposes, and 11 for recreational, but the federal government still regards marijuana as a drug on par with heroin.

This creates a world where people can open stores and sell products but opening a bank account or paying with a credit card is difficult.

Is this purely a cash economy? How are consumers, companies, and states dealing with this? How likely is legislative change? Join NYPAY for a drink and lively discussion of this increasingly prominent topic.
