Reactions to John Boehner Joining the Cannabis Industry are Mixed

On Episode #113 of “Cannabis News,” I discussed the news that former Speaker of The U.S. House of Representatives – John Boehner – has decided to enter the cannabis industry as a member of the board of advisers of Acreage Holdings, a marijuana company that operates in 11 states.

Maine Lawmakers Move Forward with Plans to Implement Voter Approved Retail Cannabis Sales

In the past two days, Maine legislators have made more progress implementing regulations for the commercial cannabis industry than they have in the last two years.
