Former GOP Leader Boehner Thinks Legal Marijuana Is the Answer for Millions

"We have to stop putting people of color in jail for something that white people do with impunity".

A poll from mid-March shows Cuomo leading Nixon by 47 points in the primary in the deep-blue state. In 2011, during his first term as Speaker, Boehner wrote that he was against the "legalization of marijuana" and "concerned that legalization will result in increased abuse of all varieties of drugs", NORML reports.

Weld and Boehner also agree that the issue of cannabis legalization is largely a debate over whether or not the 10 Amendment grants states the legal right to legalize a federally-prohibited drug.

Not only is Nixon right that marijuana should be decriminalized, both in NY and around the country, but we can't help agreeing with her assessment of the entire situation. "Isn't it time we legalize it for everyone else?"

Industry analysts are viewing Boehner's decision as a watershed event that effectively announces that marijuana has finally gone mainstream and that investment in the sector could balloon in the coming years. They focused particularly on the view of a large majority of Americans that cannabis should be legalized on a federal level.

The NBA playoff bracket is now set
Here's the latest on which teams ended up with which seeds and what their matchups will be in the Eastern and Western Conferences. They have little time to prepare for the playoffs as the first round one game is set to take place on Saturday, April 14 at 7pm.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he's studying the issue.

Unlike Boehner, Weld has been consistently advocating for medical cannabis since 1992, and supported his home state's legalization of recreational marijuana in 2016.

Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ruled that the 77-year-old Redner - who made his fortune as a strip-club owner - can grow his own marijuana because state rules prohibit Florida medical-marijuana operators from selling whole plants or flowers. He added later: "We recognize that patients should be treated as patients, not criminals". New York City's former City Council speaker Christine Quinn last week dissed Nixon as an "unqualified lesbian" - a faux pas that completely backfired on her. Quinn (herself a lesbian) was forced to apologize in the subsequent outrage, while Nixon's campaign seized on the comments, and started selling "Unqualified Lesbian" T-shirts.

"The trend that we're seeing towards acceptance of cannabis has gone hand in hand with greater education and conversation around the plant, which has naturally lessened stigmatization", said Linda Gilbert, Managing Director of BDS Analytics' Consumer Insights Division.
