(SAFE) Banking Act: Last month, I testified on behalf of the Law Enforcement Action Partnership in support of the Safe Banking Act bill


Dear Heather,




Major Neill Franklin (Ret.) testifies for the SAFE Banking Act
The Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act passed in congressional committee this morning, and will move forward to the full House for a vote!

Last month, I testified on behalf of the Law Enforcement Action Partnership in support of the bill, 
which would protect legitimate, tax-paying marijuana businesses and their employees from theft and violence by allowing access to financial services.
LEAP was the only law enforcement organization invited to testify, and we pointed out how important this bill will be for public safety. Forcing a high-volume business to rely on a cash-on-hand system places a target on the backs of employees, making dispensaries targets for thieves. I urged the House Financial Services Committee to take action. Today, they showed us that they heard our call to protect local businesses and workers. 

This is an important step for marijuana reform and a proactive measure for public safety. Thank you, 
Heather, for standing with us to make sure reform keeps moving forward. 
In solidarity, 




Major Neill Franklin (Ret.)
Executive Director
