The prices of cannabis retail items like vapes, batteries, filters, cartridges, and packaging may soon increase thanks to President Trump’s proposed tariffs, Forbes reports.
Companies in the cannabis space are especially vulnerable to product cost increases as they are unable to deduct the usual business expenses before paying taxes due to the federal status of cannabis; those business deductions are fundamental to how the vast majority of business works in the United States.
Growers are expected to suffer the most with the tariffs because, of all operators in the cannabis space, their margins are typically the slimmest and many already struggle to make ends meet.
As those in the accounting space are more equipped to discuss deductability of expenses than ourselves, we at FIRST MERCHANT BANK CARD SERVICES suggest a possibility of investing both your legacy cash and normal retail proceeds legally with a solution based Investment Fund engineered to help the legacy cash owners with a bankable opportunity with upside potential.
The Investment Fund in association with major US banks and Licensed investment bankers and legal staff have now finalized (a pre-approved banking model for sale/leaseback contract rights by Fund with pre-existing above average returns with solid exit strategies that insure 100% principal protection and ROI 36-60 months) with combination Corporate Bond and upside returns corporate real estate growth activities. The rate of return is 4% over 5- years and a 9% hybrid option over 3-years.
Our associates in cooperation with their legal team have opined that investment of “illicit drug profits” is NOT unlawful according to the federal government statutes.
(Title 21 USC, Subchapter D, Sec 854) States the following: It shall be unlawful for any person who has received any income derived, directly or indirectly, from a violation of this subchapter or subchapter II of this chapter punishable by imprisonment for more than one year in which such person has participated as a principal within the meaning of section 2 of title 18, to use or invest, directly or indirectly, any part of such income, or the proceeds of such income, in acquisition of any interest in, or the establishment or operation of, any enterprise which is engaged in, or the activities of which affect interstate or foreign commerce.
A purchase of securities on the open market for purposes of investment, and without the intention of controlling or participating in the control of the issuer, or of assisting another to do so, shall not be unlawful under this section.
With our hybrid investment model no more than 50% of proceeds (less transport and administration fees) from the offer will be placed in a brokerage account with targeted yield at 9% per annum. The balance will be at 4%.
It is the basis of this opinion whose investment program that we represent, that the corporate bond structure offered by registered prospectus to Cannabis industry professionals who desire to not only place their funds in a safe place, as many are forced to keep large sums in personal safes, but a solid chance for their funds to make significant returns, may very well be the only logical defensive strategy against the burden placed on the canna industry of items that are not deductible under federal law.
The investment transaction prospectus was prepared by our associates who manage the Investment Fund has been reviewed by Licensed Lawyers at the State and Federal Level including discussions with Investment Bankers to insure that all cash deposits up to $10MM per week (with special services for private clients that seek to deposit in excess of $10M weekly) from qualified investors can be deposited legally. This legal solution provides the client the ability to deposit cash safely from $1M- $10M of Cannabis profits weekly with up to 9% per annum return to the depositor.
