“In order for the banking industry to feel comfortable offering banking services to cannabis businesses they need a good understanding of the cannabis customer and confirmation that cannabis businesses are as concerned about abuse by criminal elements as the banks. Legitimate, compliantly operating cannabis businesses should be profitable clients to the banking community. Link to Banking offers both industries support to develop the understanding trust necessary to build sound banking relationships.”
