Former U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican from California who lost his House seat to Democrat Harley Rouda in 2018, announced on Twitter that he has become a shareholder and advisory board member for BudTrader, an online advertising platform for marijuana products, services, jobs, equipment and more.
I'm proud to announce I've joined https://t.co/ya09tKK9hc as a shareholder and advisory board member, so I may continue the fight for cannabis legalization on a national level.

First elected to Congress in 1988, Rohrabacher became a marijuana champion during his tenure in Washington DC.
Perhaps his biggest achievement on behalf of the marijuana industry was his role in the creation and passage of the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment (later renamed Rohrabacher-Blumenauer), a 2014 measure that has helped protect medical cannabis companies across the country from prosecution by the U.S. Department of Justice.
