Local politicians slobbering over tax revenue from pot sales

DENVER — It will be up to banks to decide whether to allow the use of credit cards to buy recreational marijuana.

Dozens of stores are offering patrons payment alternatives to cash, but they require a bank account.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/o4reaqb ), Visa has said their previous policy was to ensure that no illegal transactions enter their systems.

That position has softened lately, with Visa on Monday saying it’s putting the burden on merchant banks to decide the definition of illegal.
