Boehner Drops Opposition To Marijuana Legalization After Joining Board Of Cannabis Firm

WCBE files

Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio says he's had a change of heart on marijuana and will promote its nationwide legalization. 

Boehner also has joined the advisory board of New York-based Acreage Holdings, a multi-state cannabis company. The West Chester Republican  says he dropped his opposition when he saw how marijuana  helps  people with chronic illnesses and its negative impact on the criminal justice system. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
