  • Coke May Sell Beverage Infused with Marijuana Component

Reports from Bloomberg indicate that Atlanta-based Coca-Cola may be looking at getting into cannabis-based beverages, but the beverage giant denied those reports in a statement released Monday.

Aurora Cannabis Inc. says it has not signed a deal with respect to any partnership with a drink company.

"Along with many others in the beverage industry, we are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive cannabidiol as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world", Coca-Cola said in a statement.

That move has been seen as a potential prelude to further legalization in the United States, even though recreational use of marijuana is still only permitted in a handful of states.

The cannabis company said it has had talks with several beverage companies, but does not have a deal.

Earlier this year, Molson Coors Brewing said it would create cannabis-infused drinks with Hydropothecary, while Constellation Brands (producer of Corona) invested $4 billion more into marijuana company Canopy Growth.
