US DOJ: Cannabis staffing firm employee cannot file for bankruptcy

The U.S. Justice Department said an Oregon woman who works for a marijuana staffing agency can’t use bankruptcy protection because of her firm’s cannabis ties.

The Wall Street Journal reported the department’s decision is part of the DOJ’s larger policy to impose the federal marijuana ban on individuals whose income is connected to the cannabis business.

The Journal reported a U.S. trustee found that Chapter 13 bankruptcy filer Holly Christine Adair was in violation of the federal government’s cannabis prohibition because GreenForce Staffing, where she works, places job seekers with marijuana companies.

    That’s crazy. I’ll be glad when it’s federally legal so nonsense like this ruling doesn’t happen anymore. They don’t touch cannabis in any way, they’re just a staffing firm like any other. This doesn’t improve my opinion of the government, that’s for sure.
