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”.
