OLYMPIA, Wash.--  Numerica Credit Union leaders said they were glad to see the Governor addressing the issue between banks and marijuana businesses on Wednesday.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed a joint letter with the Governor of Colorado urging federal regulators to help banks deal with the marijuana growers and sellers.  The Governors said regulators need to give banks more instructions since dealing pot is still a federal offense.

Numerica announced earlier in May that it would work with customers legally growing or processing pot.
