Cannabis stocks aren’t doing so hot on Wednesday as it appears banking legislation is unlikely to pass this year.

Supporters of the bill have been attempting to add it to other legislation moving through Congress. However, it’s been a rough road with it missing out on a chance to be added to the defense budget bill last week.

The last hope for this legislation to pass this year is being added to an omnibus spending bill. Unfortunately, it seems like this isn’t going to happen, and that has shares of cannabis stocks down today.

The SAFE Banking legislation would open up marijuana companies to more investing options. Doing so would make it easier for these companies to gain institutional investors and funding for their businesses.

Let’s check out how pot stocks are reacting to today’s news below!
