Scoop: John Boehner announcing lobbying group for cannabis reform

Former House Speaker John Boehner this morning will announce the National Cannabis Roundtable, an industry-funded group to lobby for cannabis reform, including changes affecting medical research, banking and taxes.

  • "As the cannabis industry grows and matures, it’s vital that we work together for a common-sense legal framework for cannabis policy,” Boehner says in a forthcoming release.

The group has seven founding companies, including Acreage Holdings, where he's on the board.
