But recently the only thing that seems to make the needle move is news or progress on enacting comprehensive cannabis reform. Currently, this is being done in several ways. For one passing the SAFE Banking Act which would allow financial institutions to work with marijuana clients without fear of federal penalties. As well the main concern of it all is the passing of either federally legalizing cannabis or the rescheduling of the plant. This would be the biggest obstacle for the cannabis industry.

With marijuana federally legalized or decriminalized in some fashion would open up many doors that were once closed. Some feel this is what’s missing from seeing the sector run.
