If you're in the habit of using your American Express card to purchase marijuana from your local dispensary, you might want to break out that Visa or remember to bring some cash in your pocket. That's because, according to an email that began circling among dispensaries and medical marijuana activists yesterday, American Express is no longer going to permit cannabis clubs to process marijuana transactions using the card.

This news first surfaced on the website LASnark, but was rapidly picked up by medical marijuana discussion boards. The LASnark post, in turn, credits the information to the following Twitter account: @rockisagirlsbff.

Here's the rest of the alert:

Please be advised that American Express will no longer allow transactions to be processed at Medical Marijuana dispensaries.

This is a policy change made by American Express, nationwide.

Although we have absolutely no control over this matter, we apologize for the inconvenience.

We are all still able to process transactions with Master Card, Discover Card and Visa.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Be Well,

The Farmacy Staff

Ridiculous!! One way to look at it is at least they are taking a stand and not just going for the money. Hmmm...They will come around just like all the other na sayers. Only a matter of time...

We got Facebook to donate some money here in Cali...that's a hugh leap in terms of recognition with a major company....:thumb:

The high-level conspirators seldom give us anything but cliches, and a look at their new ties on TV :)
They speak as they've agreed to amongst themselves, to manipulate consumers into feeding their greed.
