Boehner for Bud: Former Speaker of the House Joins Cannabis Company Board

City's pot shop location determined

And Attorney General Jeff Sessions remains strongly opposed to legalization and rescinded a series of advisory memos created to protect those complying with state cannabis laws. "The days of making residents jump through hoops are coming to an end", Murphy said in the announcement last month.

Boehner said that he had a change of perspective after he saw how well marijuana worked for his close friend who was struggling with severe back pain.

A lot of people have been donating exactly $4.20 since we announced our plan to legalize weed in NY.

The event is also being presented in partnership with Canadians for Fair Access to Medical Marijuana and sponsored by Organigram, which is one of three licensed producers that will be providing products to P.E.I.'s cannabis retail locations. Furthermore, Boehner said he has spent years studying the issues facing the criminal justice system in the country, which makes him believe that legalization makes sense now. She spoke in favor of cannabis legalization from the start - but has now kicked that plank into high gear.

Nixon, who is challenging Cuomo in a Democratic primary, said NY should follow the lead of eight other states and end a "key front" in what she called the "racist" war on drugs. His belief in the benefits of marijuana has strengthened, particularly in the wake of prevailing opioid crisis. Further research into the matter led the former Speaker to conclude that "descheduling the drug is needed so that we can do research and allow VA [the Department of Veterans Affairs] to offer it as a treatment option in the fight against the opioid epidemic that is ravaging our communities", according to the Washington Post.

In a statement, Boehner and Weld, longtime Republicans, criticized marijuana's classification as a Schedule 1 drug, which refers to a substance that is illegal and considered to have a strong potential for abuse.

In that case, Cathy Jordan and other patients are challenging a state law, passed during a special session a year ago, that carries out the amendment and, among other things, bans patients from smoking marijuana.

It's not every day you see a politician in the United States explicitly calling the "war on drugs" racist, but that's something we're happy to see changing.

Former Gov. William Weld, (R-Mass.), on why he chose to join the advisory board for Acreage Holdings that operates marijuana dispensaries.

The state's request to block Gievers' decision - which the judge wrote applies only to Redner - comes as no surprise, according to Adam Eland, Redner's partner in a business called Florigrown.
