Former Democrat Senator Mike Gravel (D-AK) is no longer in the business of politics but the politics of his business may be very important.
Gravel has accepted a position as CEO of a marijuana company called KUSH. KUSH produced marijuana infused edible products for medicinal and recreational use.
Steve Kubby, another marijuana industry entrepreneur said, “Senator Gravel stood up to Nixon, stood up to the Pentagon, and now he is standing up to those in power who would keep the healthful benefits of cannabis from those who need them. He’s been a director of KUSH since its inception and brings invaluable perspective and connections to our group. He’s a true American hero and we’re excited to have him serving in this capacity.”
Senator Gravel added: “I’m anxious to assist in bringing this important resource to a broader market in a serious and credible way.”
