Paul Ryan isn’t the only speaker making big news today. John Boehner, who has been a staunch opponent of legalized marijuana, just joined the board of a cannabis company. “I’m joining the board of AcreageHoldings because my thinking on cannabis has evolved. 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.”

+ Quartz: 420,000 people were arrested for selling marijuana while John Boehner ran Congress.
