We reported earlier that Canadians who buy marijuana using their credit cards risk being denied U.S. entry for life. This is because U.S. border agents can invoke their right to look into the purchasing history of an alien who wishes to enter the country before letting that person through. The appearance of marijuana purchases on your credit card statement can therefore give those agents an excuse to declare you inadmissible for life. However, an app has been developed which can get rid of that risk.
The GreenGreen app allows users to purchase cannabis without using their credit cards. The app works like an online-based credit card system, so buyers simply clear their cannabis bills at the end of each month in the same way that they would make payments to settle their credit card debts.
This innovation gives Canadians a chance to consume legal marijuana in their country without fearing that they will be victimized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents when they need to travel across the border.
The GreenGreen app also enables cannabis consumers to avoid the inconvenience of withdrawing cash from an ATM each time they want to buy marijuana. Remember that the marijuana industry is still largely cash-based since major banks are reluctant to do business with an industry which is still illegal in other markets, especially the U.S. market, where those banks have major operations.
Furthermore, the app reduces the risks associated with carrying cash. For example, one will no longer fear being mugged by opportunistic criminals who want to lay their hands on the cash you are carrying to buy cannabis.
However, customers in Ontario may wait a little longer before they can benefit from the GreenGreen app. This is because the app cannot be used to make online purchases and yet the province enacted laws permitting the sale of recreational cannabis by online stores only.
Nonetheless, marijuana buyers in the U.S. can register and start using the app to buy marijuana in the states where it is legal. Countless marijuana businesses in the U.S. have had to grapple with the risks associated with operating a strictly cash-based business. The app offers a way for cashless payments to be made to and by marijuana businesses.
Cannabis-related companies like Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) and Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX.V: RIV) welcome every innovation that makes it easier for the cannabis industry to serve its clients with as few hassles as possible.
