Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took exception to the word cannabis appearing more times than the word jobs in the $3 trillion coronavirus bill introduced by House Democrats this week.
McConnell went on to criticize just how many times cannabis was mentioned in the proposal.
“The word cannabis appears in the bill 68 times.
“You know something is suspicious when the word ‘cannabis’ is used 68 times—more than ‘job’ or ‘jobs’ combined—in an economic stimulus bill.
It will be “dead on arrival” just as The Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act (SAFE) designed to allow those who make money through the cannabis industry to use the banking system, was passed by the House last year but has stalled in the Senate.
