Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson is the new president and CEO of a Nevada-based firm developing marijuana products for sale in Colorado and Washington state, where voters have legazlied the substance.
Johnson will be paid $1 per year and will receive equity in the company, the value of which he expects to go sky high. “We think we have the creme de la creme of marijuana products.” he told Politico. “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.”
I hope he’ll also serve as product pitchman on Colorado TV.
