UNDATED — The Coca-Cola Company says that it’s “closely watching” the growth of the use of a non-psychoactive element of cannabis in wellness drinks. The statement Monday came after reports over the weekend that Coca-Cola was in talks with a Canadian cannabis company to create some type of infused beverage. Coca-Cola says no decisions have been made and declined to confirm the reports. The beverage giant’s interest is another indication of the growing acceptance of cannabis in mainstream culture.
