Cal-Bay Financial Services:
The Cal-Bay Financial merchant card processing system will allow the legal payment to the dispensary by patients using the CB Green card for purchases within the dispensaries. Currently the legal use of credit cards to dispensaries for the purchase of Marijuana products has to date not been available due the nationwide dispute between state and Federal agencies as to the legality of the sale for Marijuana products; therefore the majority of the transactions are on a cash only basis. The company's merchant processing system allows for the registered dispensaries to be able to accept and process the patients CB Green card and have the proceeds deposited to their financial institution, creating an alternative to holding large amounts of non depositable cash to the banks and at the same time creating a verifiable transaction of sales for state and Federal tax collection agencies. The Cal-Bay financial website is scheduled for launch in the near future and will include a directory of Legal dispensaries who accept the CB Green Card payment program. www.calbayfinancial.com
