Legal highs: The drinks companies taking on cannabis


In August, there were reports that Diageo was in talks with at least three leading cannabis companies as it considers adding marijuana-infused drinks to its portfolio.

BNN Bloomberg reported that it had received the information from “multiple sources familiar with the matter”.

It’s understood that the owner of Gordon’s Gin and Guinness has met with several Canadian companies to discuss a possible investment or collaboration to create new cannabis-infused drinks.

A spokesperson from Diageo, however, refused to comment on the reports, but did add: “As we’ve said before, we are monitoring this space closely”
