Former Congressman and Speaker of the House John Boehner announced today that he is Joining Acreage Holdings.
For those like me that had no idea what Acreage Holdings is, we turn to Axios for the answer,
“cultivates, processes, and dispenses legal marijuana in the U.S”
Why It Matters:
The former Speaker John Boehner nine years ago, was “unalterably opposed” to the thought of Marijuana becoming legal.
He is not the only former politician to be joining the company along with Boehner, former Massachusetts Governor William Weld has also become a new member to the advisory board.
