Former Libertarian Candidate Johnson Becomes Pot Hot Shot

Deep in the weed.

A Nevada-based startup that plans on selling medical and recreational marijuana products named former New Mexico governor and U.S. Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson as its CEO and president, the company announced Tuesday.

The announcement came as Cannabis Sativa Inc. said it had acquired marijuana research business Kush while company officials work to navigate changing state laws on marijuana and potential challenges from the federal government, which still views marijuana as a controlled substance.

Finally, a logical, legal, post-politics career step for libertarians!

I have been joking about it for a while but I do sort of believe that marijuana could be one of the next big boom industries once states go full Colorado. Who will emerge as the Apple or Microsoft of weed? Dream big, kids!
