Hanan_B_KolkoNew York Post quoted Hanan Kolko in an article titled “Stoners Trade Tie-Dye T-Shirts for Wall Street Suits.” The article, published October 1st, discusses the national legal marijuana market and how its worth is going to leap to more than $10 billion.

The article stated: “The other problem with the industry: Banks are still hesitant to handle money from pot-related businesses, even though New York’s Department of Justice gave them the go-ahead last year, says Hanan Kolko, a Manhattan labor lawyer who has been working with legal issues related to New York’s medical marijuana law.

Who would even want to get involved in such a high-risk field, where you sometimes have to deal in all-cash?“People who are entering this business have a sense that society is shifting in their direction,” Kolko says. “So they want to be the first movers. They want to get in early.””
