Skip to comments.Boehner's bombshell weed reversal a big boost for marijuana
Posted on 04/11/2018 8:02:36 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
The pot industry panicked when U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended the governments hands-off policy on weed. Today, it can breathe a bit easier as former Republican House Speaker John Boehner joins the advisory board of U.S. cannabis producer Acreage Holdings.
The announcement that Boehner and former Massachusetts Governor William Weld will advise Acreage, a private company, should send shockwaves throughout the industry and act as a positive catalyst for the sector as a whole, Ajamian said.
Boehners move marks a fundamental shift for a man who said nine years ago he was unalterably opposed to legalization, and indicates that pot is increasingly supported by the American establishment even if the Attorney General still believes good people dont smoke marijuana.

How much money is he making off of it?
Of pot destroys but one cell of Bonehead’s brain, it’ll take out 50% of his processing power.
Another example of the theory that politicians are politicians because there is nothing useful in the world they can do, so they choose to do something that requires only greed and stupidity, not talent.
May the flies of a thousand camels come to rest in his beer, and may he die alone, worthless, and without a friend in the multiverse.
Follow the $$$. Boehner was a sell-out before, now even more so publicly.
It’s just a way to get rich.
Beat me to it.
Ganja good for Rastaman.
He up the infamous “global warming” photo of Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi. These jokers will do anything for a buck.
No wonder the US is in such a sorry state.
With conservative leadership like this who needs liberals.
I had a dream last night about investing in a pot business and whether it was right for a conservative.
Then I woke up and read Boehner’s tweet.
As if there was any doubt, I got my answer. Resounding NO.
I knew that already of course. I’m open to medical uses, but there seems to be a very low bar and no oversight.
the State of Maryland approved medical marijuana this year. They are 37 legal dispensaries in the state. As a comparison, there are only 20 Motor Vehicle Administration offices in the state to get license plates.
There simply can’t be that many people in legitimate chronic need of cannabis.
Guess the booze just wasn’t cutting it, eh, John?
There aren’t. This is the camel’s nose on the way to complete legalization...then taxation. It’s a cash grab. The collateral damage doesn’t matter.
Now we know why he was crying all the time.
Not really a “bombshell” crybaby bonerhead is a self serving phony.
Cue Cheech & Chong ...
It really says something about human nature that the people who are very rich, and very powerful, feel an overwhelming need — a desperate need — to do something (anything!) to become more rich and more powerful.
Boehner is a Rastafarian?
That’s his son-in-law.
