HSBC questioned and suspended an elderly couple buying Bitcoin

According to AMBcrypto, an elderly couple tried to buy bitcoin using HSBC's First Direct online account to purchase medical marijuana. The bank not only rejected the transaction, but also frozen all of its online payments. The bank argued that the couple said the medical marijuana trader only accepts bitcoin payments, and the banking system is skeptical. However, when they tried to buy Bitcoin for another reason, the bank refused again, calling it a protection for the customer.
