BJs for MMJs? – Sex Scandals in the Marijuana Industry That No One Really Cares About?

A case in point is the recent sordid cannabis corruption and bribery scheme engulfing Michigan’s political establishment. Politicians like former Republican House Speaker Rick Johnson were entrusted by the people and empowered by the state to ethically regulate marijuana in the public interest. Yet instead, Johnson and his cohorts abused this authority by exchanging lucrative cannabis business licenses for large cash bribes and access to sexual favors from sex workers. This crass quid pro quo scheme exposes the rottenness right at the core of cannabis prohibition.
