    Default Ex-Governor heads company

    Opinions aside, this shows that when a business opportunity arises, people will act.

    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.
    Johnson said he hoped to expand Cannabis Sativa into a major marijuana business and intends to work out of New Mexico to help develop products that are legal in states like Colorado and Washington.

    "I generally believe this is changing the planet for the better," said Johnson, who will be paid $1 a year and receive equity in the company. "It also is a bet on the future ... We think we have the creme de la creme of marijuana products."
    So he didn't have to inhale ?

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

    I saw this on the news last night of course. Actually Gary is quite proud to admit he has inhaled. He has been a huge pro marijuana advocate for some time now.
