Cannabis lab struggles to find home in Bay Area Known as an avid cigarette smoker, the Ohio Republican has joined the advisory board of Acreage Holdings, a multistate cannabis company.

Former Speaker of the House John Boehner has joined the advisory board of cannabis company, a surprising career move for a Republican who firmly opposed all cannabis reform while in office. "I'm convinced de-scheduling the drug is needed so we can do research, help our veterans, and reverse the opioid epidemic ravaging our communities". 66 percent of New York Democrats say they'd vote for Cuomo in a primary, compared to only 19 percent for Nixon. Boehner says in a statement his position "has evolved" from opposition to legalizing marijuana.

In a joint statement issued by Speaker Boehner and Governor Weld specifically promoted the potential for medical marijuana use by veterans.

Boehner is joined on the board of advisers by former MA governor Bill Weld, a Republican who left office in 1997 and was former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson's running mate in 2016 on the libertarian party ticket.

We believe that cannabis producers "represent the next wave of outsized returns for investors" once the halo of legalization in Canada fades. The announcement by Boehner and Weld "should send shockwaves throughout the industry and act as a positive catalyst for the sector as a whole", Ajamian said, reports Bloomberg News.

APC: Why Buhari Deserves To Be Re-Elected In 2019
When he was running in 2011 he said yes he will be a president for only one term but did he win in that year? No. He said that Buhari's declaration was in reaction to appeals by millions of Nigerians.

Weld and Boehner also agree that the issue of cannabis legalization is largely a debate over whether or not the 10 Amendment grants states the legal right to legalize a federally-prohibited drug.

Not only is Nixon right that marijuana should be decriminalized, both in NY and around the country, but we can't help agreeing with her assessment of the entire situation.

It's not every day you see a politician in the United States explicitly calling the "war on drugs" racist, but that's something we're happy to see changing.

Erik Altieri, executive director for NORML, also said that Boehner's newfound support of cannabis is in line with the recent growth of public support, but added that "it would've been more helpful for him advocating for this 10 years ago".
