The company also announced that former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld has joined its advisory board.

Boehner's career change is especially shocking considering that the former Congressman said he was "unalterably opposed" to cannabis decriminalization less than a decade ago.

A lot of people have been donating exactly $4.20 since we announced our plan to legalize weed in NY. "I find myself in that same position".

Erik Altieri, executive director for the Washington-based marijuana advocacy group NORML, told The Washington Post that Boehner's acceptance of marijuana tracks with rising American and even Republican lawmaker evolving beliefs about the drug and its uses.

"I made a decision to get involved because of the struggles of our country's veterans and the opioid epidemic, after learning how descheduling the drug can potentially help with both crises", said Boehner, now 68. As governor, Weld advocated for medical marijuana legalization since 1992 but his time as a federal prosecutor limited his stance on how far to decriminalize marijuana, he said in 2016. Weld also believes that cannabis has great potential to help wean the country off its opioid problem.

They focused particularly on the view of a large majority of Americans that cannabis should be legalized on a federal level. Over the past 20 years a growing number of states have experimented with their right to offer cannabis programs under the protection of the 10th amendment.

Opponents are concerned once the bylaw is in place, it will be hard to remove after the federal government introduces legislation to allow for the legal production and sale of recreational marijuana.
