A Democratic lawmaker in Colorado has introduced a bill that would shield banks from federal prosecution for conducting business with recently legalized marijuana retailers.
He argued, however, that the banking guidance is an important development for federal authorities who see the problems of a cash-only business but still consider the business itself illegal.
Rep. Ed Perlmutter, who has sponsored a long-stalled pot-banking bill, said he's optimistic Congress will act on banking, but it may be a couple years off.
