    Talk about a 180. I wonder what changed his position? Maybe money??

    John Boehner, the former speaker of the House who reportedly once told a constituent that he was “unalterably opposed to the legalization of marijuana,” announced Wednesday that he is joining the board of a cannabis producer.

    “I’m joining the board of #AcreageHoldings because my thinking on cannabis has evolved,” the Ohio Republican said in a tweet. “I’m convinced de-scheduling the drug is needed so we can do research, help our veterans, and reverse the opioid epidemic ravaging our communities.”

    Marijuana is still classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule I substance — meaning it’s considered more dangerous than cocaine (Schedule II) or ketamine (Schedule III).
