Candidate Joe Biden promised to remove cannabis from the “Schedule 1” list of narcotics established by the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. President Biden hasn’t acted. But it looks like Congress will soon take steps to remove old federal barriers still in the way of what’s already a multi-billion-dollar industry in the U.S. Easing banking restrictions and opening the cannabis industry for cross-state-border commerce would certainly go a long way toward fixing geographic distortions and other impediments to scale. Jason Wild, founder of JW Asset Management, is back to talk with Tony Greer of TG Macro about operational efficiency and other key issues impacting cannabis as a business in the U.S. The stock market hasn’t treated cannabis stocks kindly of late. But it’s still early days in this “Green Rush.” Filmed on January 18, 2022.
