Former GOP Leader Boehner Thinks Legal Marijuana Is the Answer for Millions

John Boehner is heading for the boardroom of a cannabis company, the former Speaker of the House announced Wednesday.

"When you look at the number of people in our state and federal penitentiaries who are there for possession of small amounts of cannabis, you begin to really scratch your head", Boehner said. This is a dramatic shift from 50 years ago, when only about 12 percent of the people supported legalization.

Weld has favored medical cannabis since 1992.

Democratic candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon has outlined her plans for legalizing marijuana in NY in a video, saying the state lags far behind some other states. His belief in the benefits of marijuana has strengthened, particularly in the wake of prevailing opioid crisis.

Money, it's the most powerful drug ever. Acreage Holdings is an investment company with a well-established footprint in the cannabis industry, Acreage operates in 11 states and has a diverse portfolio in the marijuana industry that includes cultivation, processing, and dispensing operations. "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".

Unlike Boehner, Weld has been consistently advocating for medical cannabis since 1992, and supported his home state's legalization of recreational marijuana in 2016. Yet the VA does not allow its doctors to recommend its usage.

Leon County Judge Karen Gievers said that Joseph Redner is entitled under state law to possess, grow and use marijuana for juicing. He wants to see federally funded research done and to allow Veterans Affairs to offer marijuana as a treatment option.

Acreage Founder and CEO Kevin Murphy said on the appointments that the addition of Speaker Boehner and Governor Weld to the company's board will lead to greater access for patients by changing the conversation overnight.

The state's request to block Gievers' decision - which the judge wrote applies only to Redner - comes as no surprise, according to Adam Eland, Redner's partner in a business called Florigrown.
