Industry News

Curaleaf Holdings, Inc., a leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the United States, responded to the passage of the Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act of 2019 ("SAFE Banking Act").

"The historic passage of the SAFE Banking Act by the U.S. House of Representatives is an important first step in the process toward normalizing the cannabis industry's ability to transact. If ratified, the bill will increase the safety of our operations for our patients, customers and employees by reducing the reliance on cash and promoting transparency. This is incredibly important legislation for an industry that represents approximately $50 billion in sales per year and is expected to grow to $80 billion in sales by 2030, according to Cowen. In addition to normalizing the industry, the bill also provides more access to capital for cannabis businesses of all sizes, which will support social equity in our industry. We applaud the members of the House for their leadership in passing this important bill with bipartisan support and look forward to gaining support in the Senate," said Curaleaf CEO Joseph Lusardi.
