The New York Times recently profiled people running marijuana shops in Colorado. Even though marijuana is legal in the state, it’s still illegal in the United States. And the federal government can still arrest people growing or selling pot. The video shows you how banking is nearly impossible for the cannabis industry. The result: a dangerous all-cash operation that requires armed guards and layers of security. The documentary is produced by Axel Gerdau and John Woo, enjoy!
