According to Hustler founder Larry Flynt, marijuana in the United States is “finally prevailing.”
As part of his latest publisher’s statement for the magazine’s 44th Anniversary Spectacular, Flynt talks about the progress the U.S. has made when it comes to marijuana reform and mentions former Speaker of the House John Boehner.
“Why is he jumping the bandwagon now? Because it’s safer to do so now that several states have legalized both medicinal and recreational marijuana,” Flynt wrote.
“Conservatives are always two steps behind on any kind of forward-thinking progress.”
Earlier this year Boehner had said he now supports medicinal marijuana and joined the board of a cannabis company.
McConnell and Boehner are simply adhering to what should be the real motto of the GOP, money talks,” Flynt also wrote.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports hemp farming, which Flynt has said “is the single most versatile plant on Earth, used for everything from clothing, paper, fiberboard, insulation, fuel and food to toxic cleanup.”
