As the cannabis space grows, so too does the list of noteworthy investors and brand representatives.
The early celebrity entrants were often cannabis advocates and users such as Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Melissa Etheridge.
Today, the market expansion includes individuals from politics, business and entertainment.
They include former Speaker of the House John Boehner, who joined the board of Acreage Holdings Inc in 2018 after years of opposition to the plant.
Boehner further about-faced in 2019 when he was named the honorary chairman of the National Cannabis Roundtable lobbying group.
