Next Tuesday, on October 23, at 1 pm ET, John Boehner, former Speaker of the House, will be part of a team of presenters leading a free online event for budding (no pun intended) cannabis investors. Yes, you read that correctly. The  ex-House Speaker John Boehner will be holding forth on the virtues of investing in cannabis

On his participation in this cannabis investing summit, Boehner seemed to express more enthusiasm and gusto than he ever did during his ostensibly joyless four-year tenure as Speaker of the House. “The next generation of billion-dollar cannabis companies are ripe for the picking, you just have to make smart moves,” he said, according to a press release touting the event. However, in that same announcement, he issues a temperate warning that goes hand in hand with the bullishness. “Don’t go blindly investing in this sector because it’s exciting and you don’t want to miss the boat. Cannabis is here to stay, the industry is only getting bigger, and I am all in.” There you have it.
