Gallup shows 50% support nationwide for marijuana legalization, compared to 46% opposition. Two states have just passed legalization measures by decisive margins. Why would we want to prevent banks from helping ensure that the new legal, regulated market approved by the voters of these states can operate above-board without unnecessary barriers?

Because buying weed off the streets is so much better than it being regulated to take away from the gangs and violence coming from Mexico. Good job government, keep it underground, keep growing the drug cartels, expanding violence, growing the gangs, and upping the number of murders that stem from street drugs. Instead of reducing the need to buy off the streets, and regulate it to keep it out of the hands of minors. Yeah, our government is screwed up.
