Los Angeles’ City Council president wants to establish a municipal bank to serve marijuana businesses, including providing financing.

The proposed bank would also serve affordable housing developers and small businesses, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

According to the newspaper, Council President Herb Wesson likely will direct a committee to study the practicality of a municipal bank.
