This week, San Francisco dispensary Vapor Room announced that it must stop accepting Visa and MasterCard credit and debit payments at their Haight St. location. Vapor Room customers will have to go cash-only, joining hundreds of thousands of other patients nationwide, as the U.S. Department of the Treasury pressures credit/debit card servicers and banks to close legal medical marijuana business accounts.
