Boehner's opinion on marijuana goes up in smoke now that he's no longer Speaker of the House
Former Republican House Speaker John Boehner [[ BAY-nur ]] has a new gig: advising a marijuana company. Boehner posted on Twitter that he will join the board of advisers of Acreage Holdings.
"I’m joining the board of #AcreageHoldings because my thinking on cannabis has evolved," Boehner tweeted. "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."
During his time in Congress, Boehner strongly opposed the legalization of pot. Former Massachusetts Republican Governor Bill Weld is also joining the marijuana company.
- Acreage Holdings, which operates in more than 10 states, says it wants to make cannabis available to "any patient who can benefit from safe and reliable access."
A wedding venue accidentally sent an email to a bride-to-be calling her a “cow.”
A restaurant in the UK surely won’t be booking one bride-to-be for her wedding after they accidently sent the woman an email calling her a cow. “The Sun” reports Jade Sharp had made arrangements to visit the restaurant, Mulberry Tree, in hopes of celebrating her wedding there. She ended up writing a TripAdvisor review of her disastrous experience.
“We arrived for the appointment at a date and time confirmed by the manager,” Sharp explains. “However, we were greeted by surprised faces as they were closed to the public.” She goes on to explain how they were taken on their tour anyway, but were met with terrible customer service as no one really answered any of their questions. It was after the appointment Sharp received an email from the manager, Karen Williams, intended for another manager calling Sharp a cow, which in the UK is the equivalent of calling someone a b****.
Sharp later received a phone call from the manager apologizing, but that didn’t stop Sharp from writing her review. The manager responded to her comments. “I am absolutely mortified, horrified and completely embarrassed that you had sight of such an email,” the owner writes in a response to Sharp’s review. “It is completely unprofessional and indefensible.” Sharp has obviously sought other venues for her wedding.

Eight Argentinian officers claim the mice are responsible for the disappearance of half a ton of marijuana.
A group of Argentinian police officers have been fired after they claimed that mice ate through half a ton of marijuana kept in storage. The eight officers are blaming mice for the disappearance of the weed from a police warehouse totaling half a ton in weight. According to reports, the weed had been stored in the unit used for impounded drugs along with five tons more of the substance.
Former police commissioner Javier Specia was previously in charge of the missing drugs. However his replacement, Emilio Portero noticed the missing drugs when he had the warehouse inspected. Specia and three officers under his command all told Judge Adrián González the same thing, that mice had eaten the missing drugs.
Forensic experts admit that it would take a large number of mice to eat through all of that marijuana. Researchers at Buenos Aires University say mice wouldn’t ever mistake pot for food and if so, there would be dead mice everywhere. Specia and the officers have been asked to testify in the case May 4th.
