Diageo rumoured to be lining up cannabis deal

In another Cannabis story, in August, we covered the news that UK-based alcoholic drinks giant Diageo was reported to be in talks with at least three leading cannabis producers as it considers adding marijuana-infused drinks to its portfolio.

As reported by BNN Bloomberg, which stated that it received the information from “multiple sources familiar with the matter”, Diageo has held “serious discussions” with at least three major cannabis producers.

It met with several Canadian companies to discuss a possible investment or collaboration to create new cannabis-infused drinks, according to BNN Bloomberg.

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