Steve Bannon’s Think-Tank Releases ‘Cannabis Cronyism’ Report

The Government Accountability Institute (GAI), a conservative think-tank founded in 2012 by Peter Schweizer and Steve Bannon, released a 76-page report this week detailing instances of alleged political corruption in the cannabis industry.

Bannon was arrested last August by federal officials after he allegedly defrauded the supporters of former President Donald Trump who donated to a private fund-raising effort called We Build the Wall. Bannon — who is believed to have pocketed the supporters’ donations — was pardoned by the former president days before he left office.
