SEEING GREEN: IS JOHN BOEHNER GOOD FOR THE WEED BUSINESS?

John Boehner, October 2015

John Boehner, an Ohio Republican who served as Speaker of the House between 2011 and 2015, has never consumed cannabis and declared himself “unalterably opposed” to legalization while in office. His thinking has evolved.

Since joining the Acreage board last year, Boehner has become a prominent and well connected voice for legalization in Washington D.C.

This week in Seeing Green, I look at Boehner’s record and ask what it might mean for the weed business.
