Banks have new guidance for lending to hemp industry


WASHINGTON (NEWS10) — Following advocacy from lawmakers, new guidance is being released to banks about lending to businesses within the hemp industry.

Many banks and other financial institutions have been hesitant to lend to hemp businesses due to confusion over legal status.

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said the industry’s access to financial services will help hemp become a cash crop for farmers and upstate workers.
