Boehner is going to be loaded

Nonprofit trade group Hemp Industries Association, has partnered with cannabis industry stakeholders Hoban Law Group, CBD product company Bluebird Botanicals, and farm supplier Bish Enterprises to launch Hemp is Legal campaign addressing social media platform Facebook's current policy of prohibiting hemp promotion and advertising on both Facebook and Instagram.
