John Boehner to lead new lobbying group for cannabis
John Boehner, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives isn’t just kicking back and relaxing since leaving the House. He’s been active as a board member for a cannabis company, Acreage Holdings. Now, he’ll head back to Washington DC from his home state of Ohio, to lobby for an
industry-funded lobbying group called The National Cannabis Roundtable.
The group, which launched Friday, is industry funded and will work on removing federal restrictions that prohibit research on cannabis, combatting the opioid epidemic and developing solutions for veterans.
