Alcohol companies should be watching their backs. That’s the warning from Torsten Kuenzlen, a former executive for The Coca-Cola Co. and Molson Coors. In his opinion, legal cannabis has an obvious competitive advantage over alcohol products. “All alcohol is consumed only as a liquid. Cannabis meets more consumer needs and motivations in the way that it’s consumed,” Kuenzlen said, adding that it’s a matter of time before cannabis companies start buying alcohol makers. Kuenzlen took the reins of Sundial Growers, a privately owned Canadian cannabis company, earlier this month.
He aims to make the Alberta-based company into one of the top cannabis firms in Canada, to “build the Coca-Cola of cannabis.” - via MJBizDaily
Should Medical Schools Start Teaching About Cannabis? The answer is YES! "
Medical marijuana is legal currently in 29 states, and more are looking to pass marijuana legislation this year.
