Ian Katz quoted in The Hill

"New Push to Open Banks to Marijuana Industry"


Ian Katz was quoted in Sylvan Lane's The Hill article, "New Push To Open Banks To Marijuana Industry," published on February 20th. 

The article reads:

Ian Katz, director at policy research firm Capital Alpha Partners, said that while the bill has a clear path through the House, hang-ups about the potential dangers of the drug could derail it in the Senate.

“The Senate includes an unknown number of men who were brought up convinced that marijuana is bad and a gateway to more dangerous drugs,” Katz wrote in a research note.

“The SAFE Act can’t pass without the support of some of those men.”
