Former US House Speaker John Boehner to promote legalizing marijuana

Former US House Speaker John Boehner to promote legalizing marijuanaā€¯

NewscomFormer House Speaker John Boehner's announcement that he has joined the board of a cannabis company provoked considerable grumbling from antiprohibitionists who noted that he could have done a lot more to advance the cause if he had backed it before leaving Congress. He says he believes legalizing marijuana can be helpful to the nation's veterans and as a way to help fight the US opioid drug crisis.

A poll from mid-March shows Cuomo leading Nixon by 47 points in the primary in the deep-blue state.

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.

Boehner's career change is especially shocking considering that the former Congressman said he was "unalterably opposed" to cannabis decriminalization less than a decade ago.

Currently, eight other states and Washington, D.C., have legalized marijuana for recreational use.

Some believe Nixon's support for marijuana could help her attract African-American voters, particularly considering how she's framing the issue as a criminal justice problem. "Cannabis could be perceived as an exit drug, not a gateway drug", he said to Bloomberg.

Marijuana stocks, many of which are listed in Canada because of U.S. legal uncertainty, have been struggling this year after almost 3X'ing in Y 2017.

Unlike Boehner, Weld has been consistently advocating for medical cannabis since 1992, and supported his home state's legalization of recreational marijuana in 2016. "[If cannabis] was legalized in Jersey and it was legal in MA and the federal government allowed it to go ahead, what would that do to NY, because it's right in the middle?" he asked rhetorically. Yet the VA does not allow its doctors to recommend its usage.

Opponents are concerned once the bylaw is in place, it will be hard to remove after the federal government introduces legislation to allow for the legal production and sale of recreational marijuana.
