The New York Times reports…
Nikki Fried, a Democrat running for agriculture commissioner in Florida, has made no secret of her support for medical marijuana.
Further expansion of the state’s program is the highest priority on her campaign website. Before entering the race, she ran a lobbying firm, Igniting Florida, and described herself as “one of most visible faces and key activists in Florida’s burgeoning medical cannabis industry.”
Even so, employees at Wells Fargo, where her campaign held an account, had questions about her platform.
The bank, which says it has a policy against serving marijuana-related businesses, had noticed that Ms. Fried was “advocating for expanded patient access to medical marijuana.” It asked the campaign in July whether it would be receiving money from “lobbyists from the medical marijuana industry in any capacity.”
