The researchers can not say if people switched from opioid prescriptions to using a medical marijuana product. Yet the VA does not allow its doctors to recommend its usage. Acreage Holdings is an investment company with a well-established footprint in the cannabis industry, Acreage operates in 11 states and has a diverse portfolio in the marijuana industry that includes cultivation, processing, and dispensing operations.

Boehner's decision may not come as a surprise to some.
