On Wednesday, former Speaker of the House John Boehner announced he would join the board of advisor of Acreage Holdings, one of the largest cannabis (marijuana) corporations in the country.

Acreage Holdings simultaneously issued a release announcing Boehner’s appointment to the board as well as the appointment of former Massachusetts governor William Weld. The company stated:

 As members of the Board, Speaker Boehner and Governor Weld will bring an immense, collective and unique set of experiences in government affairs, unmatched leadership and guidance to help drive Acreage towards its strategic mission.

Acreage Founder and CEO Kevin Murphy added, “Acreage has a mission to make cannabis available to any patient who can benefit from safe and reliable access. The addition of Speaker Boehner and Governor Weld to our Board will lead to even greater access for patients by changing the conversation overnight. These men have shaped the political course of our country for decades and now they will help shape the course of this nascent but ascendant industry.”
