Nevada: Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson Named CEO of Marijuana Company

A Nevada-based company that plans to sell recreational and medical marijuana products has named former Libertarian Presidential candidate New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson as its CEO and president, the company, Cannabis Sativa Inc., announced on Tuesday.

The company also said it has acquired Kush, a marijuana research business founded by Steve Kubby, a fellow Libertarian who once called for California to secede from the United States. Kubby, the 1998 Libertarian Party nominee for California governor, was named chairman by Cannabis Sativa Inc.

Johnson said he hoped to expand the company and said he intends to work out of New Mexico to help develop products that are legal in Colorado and Washington, reports the Associated Press. Johnson will be paid $1 a year and receive equity in the company.

The company will make marijuana-based oils aimed at helping children with epilepsy, according to Johnson, who said it will also make cough drop-like products for recreational use.

"Couple of things hit you when you try the product," Johnson said. "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."
