Former GOP Leader Boehner Thinks Legal Marijuana Is the Answer for Millions

County seeks compromise on site of cannabis operations sArtHead =

As Nixon points out in her video on the subject, there are plenty of reasons to legalize marijuana, and there have already been successful campaigns all around the country to do just that on a sub-federal level. 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.

There is growing confusion over the federal government's introduction of legislation to legalize the use of recreational marijuana in Canada.

Nixon says 80 percent of the New Yorkers arrested for marijuana are black or Latino, despite the fact that whites and people of color use marijuana at roughly the same rates.

Marijuana stocks, many of which are listed in Canada because of United States legal uncertainty, have been struggling this year after almost 3X'ing in Y 2017.

Even if Nixon doesn't win the nomination, hopefully her campaign will help motivate Cuomo to embrace more progressive ideals, such as marijuana legalization.

Unlike Boehner, Weld has been consistently advocating for medical cannabis since 1992, and supported his home state's legalization of recreational marijuana in 2016. The two said in a joint statement that they believe "the time has come for serious consideration of a shift in federal marijuana policy", specifically citing the drug's use by veterans "to self-treat PTSD, chronic pain and other ailments".

Industry analysts are viewing Boehner's decision as a watershed event that effectively announces that marijuana has finally gone mainstream and that investment in the sector could balloon in the coming years. Boehner has been appointed to the board of advisers of Acreage Holdings, a New York City-based canna-business running cultivation, dispensary, and processing operations in 11 states. "[If cannabis] was legalized in Jersey and it was legal in MA and the federal government allowed it to go ahead, what would that do to NY, because it's right in the middle?" he asked rhetorically.

She also recalled that Cuomo - as recently as a year ago - was still echoing the discredited notion that cannabis is a "gateway drug".

"I think we're actually ahead on it", Cuomo said.
