Former Republican House Speaker Is Advising A Marijuana Corporation

Former Republican House Speaker Is Advising A Marijuana Corporation

Medical Marijuana Advisory Board member Molly Robertson said "anything that we can do to help, help them get off the heavy drugs, I think is a positive".

The researchers cite four reasons they believe the legalization of cannabis may have had a positive effect on violent crime rates starting with the suggestion that legalization itself, "reduces the likelihood of [cannabis users and growers] engaging in violent activities". 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.

"When you look at the number of people in our state and federal penitentiaries who are there for possession of small amounts of cannabis, you begin to really scratch your head", Boehner said.

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.

Weld has favored medical cannabis since 1992.

Cynthia Nixon's campaign for governor continues with her latest video about why she supports legalizing the use of recreational marijuana in NY. His belief in the benefits of marijuana has strengthened, particularly in the wake of prevailing opioid crisis.

The results are in and the people of Redcliff have had their say. "Cannabis could be perceived as an exit drug, not a gateway drug", he said to Bloomberg. "Well, we did put a survey out and in my opinion it wasn't followed". This year's report, unlike previous versions, urges states to improve their programs to use medical cannabis as a tool to fight the opioid crisis.

Proposed amendments would give the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) the needed tools to oversee and enforce Alberta's new cannabis market.

They say that there are negative consequences to federal policy which designates marijuana as a Class 1 drug - meaning it lacks accepted medical use and has a high potential to be abused.

"The LCBO is committed to ensuring that OCS sites are responsible partners in the communities they operate in", states an April 11 press release.

Boehner's decision may not come as a surprise to some.

Paul Ryan, Boehner's successor when he resigned as speaker in 2015, had talked about the work of getting the smell of cigarette smoke out of the speaker's office after Boehner's departure.
