Check out this interesting read entitled Loan denials common for Oregon pot workers from McLatchydc.com, authored byThe Bulletin.
When Melissa Johnson needed a new car last summer, she bought a used Kia Soul from the dealership in Bend.
She drove away with an affordable payment and relatively low interest rate on an auto loan. But a week later, she said, she received a call: “You need to come into the dealership.”
Turns out, Johnson said in March, financing was denied because her income comes from her job in customer service at Bloom Well, a retail marijuana shop on Division Street in Bend.
The sales staff at the dealership, which declined to comment for this story, tried to find a solution for Johnson.
