    Marijuana industry boosts DC lobbying team

    https://thehill.com/business-a-lobby...-lobbying-team

    The marijuana industry is boasting its largest lobbying team in Washington ever, as it gears up to push through major legislation in 2019.

    The Cannabis Trade Federation (CTF), a nonprofit to educate and advocate for cannabis in public policy, has hired 15 lobbyists to push the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act, the group first told The Hill.

    As I predicted, the money behind the MJ industry is going to drive legislative repeal & put MJ on a legal basis in more & more states over the next few years.

    "Perhaps the most famous D.C. marijuana advocate is former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who sits on the board of the cannabis corporation, Acreage Holdings."

    ... interesting name to be in on all of this.

    With the money getting behind this it is only a matter of time.
