President Gary Johnson: Former Libertarian candidate lands top job with marijuana company — RT USA:

July 2, 2014 - "Gary Johnson, the former two-term governor of New Mexico and the Libertarian Party’s candidate in the last United States presidential race, has been named the CEO and president of a budding Nevada-based marijuana startup.

"Cannabis Sativa Inc. announced on Tuesday this week that Johnson, 61, has been brought aboard the company concurrent with the acquisition of Kush, 'a development stage company engaged in the research, development and licensing of specialized natural cannabis products.' According to a press release published by the group this week, the company plans to sell marijuana-infused oils intended to treat hypertension, as well as a throat lozenge for recreational use.

"'The successful completion of the merger represents a major milestone for Cannabis Sativa, Inc.' Johnson said in a statement. 'With the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington, we are already seeing that the demand is significant. We believe the opportunity is here to deliver products that could change the world for the better....

"'I think in 10 years, for the most part, the US will legalize marijuana,' Johnson said in this week’s statement. 'And what the US does, so does the world'.

"Along with bringing Johnson on board, Cannabis Sativa has also appointed Steve Kubby — the founder of Kush and a former Libertarian Party candidate for governor of California — as its chairman.

"On his part, Johnson will only be paid an annual salary of $1, plus equity, for assuming the role of the company’s president and CEO."
