After Saying He Was “Unalterably Opposed” To Marijuana Ex-Speaker Joins Advisory Board

Former House Speaker John Boehner is on the advisory board of a company that cultivates, processes and dispenses cannabis. Acreage Holdings is operating in 11 states currently.

What’s the reason for the Republican’s change of heart? In his own words, a lot has changed in attitude.

“Over the last 10 or 15 years, the American people’s attitudes have changed dramatically,” Boehner said during an interview. “I find myself in that same position.”

It is estimated that revenues from the legalized marijuana business will reach $75 billion by 2030.

In a recent Gallup survey, 64% of Americans, and a majority of both Republicans and Democrats feel that legalization would be a good thing.
