Comments

“Today, we’re discussing an issue that, we can all agree, must be addressed. As changing state laws spur the formation of thousands of cannabis-related businesses across the country, I’ve heard from many banks and credit unions who are facing the decision of whether they can or cannot get involved with these businesses…The bottom line is the law, not personal preferences, must dictate the accessibility of financial services, and as long as marijuana is illegal at the federal level attempts by this committee to legalize the banking of it will create more confusion than clarity.” (2/13/19)

On Perlmutter's Banking Measure Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) reserved a point of order against the measure, claiming it was not germane to the overall bill on stress testing for financial institutions. (As an aside, the GOP lawmaker did mention that his daughter resides in Colorado and that they talk about marijuana issues "a lot"). (11/20/17)

In a letter to a constituent about H.R.2306, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011, "Thank you for contacting me regarding laws governing marijuana. I appreciate your views on this issue and welcome the opportunity to respond... While I am not saying marijuana is as addictive or harmful as heroin, I do believe its regulation should more closely mirror that of heroin rather than alcohol... While I appreciate your views on this issue, I must strongly disagree. I hope you understand where I am coming from and want you to know that I appreciate your taking the time to contact me.
