Gary Johnson becomes CEO of Marijuana Business

Former New Mexico Politician Starts Slanging Weed

For those continuing to lobby against the legalization of marijuana, your arguments are being shot to pieces with people like former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson on the scene.

Recently, Gary Johnson was named the CEO and President of Nevada-based startup Cannabis Sativa Incorporated, and according to the Associated Press, Johnson intends to expand the company into a huge marijuana business that develops products to be distributed in states like Washington and Colorado. When asked about the reasoning behind this move, Johnson said:

I generally believe this is changing the planet for the better. It also is a bet on the future … We think we have the creme de la creme of marijuana products.

Johnson also stated that the company will make weed-based oils, which are intended to help kids with epilepsy. He also said they are making weed-based cough drops for recreational use.

When making his last selling point on his future spread of marijuana-based products, he said:

Couple of things hit you when you try the product. One is, wow, why would anybody smoke marijuana given this is an alternative? And then secondly, it’s just very, very pleasant. I mean, very pleasant.”

Gary Johnson will be working out of New Mexico, and will be paid one dollar per year as his salary, along with receiving equity in the company.
