https://finance.yahoo.com/news/7-reasons-why-drinkers-could-162631101.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether weed-infused drinks are going to catch on the way vape pens, edibles, and traditional flower have is still up for debate, but your favorite beer companies are still most likely looking over their shoulders. And that’s because they have a legitimate concern that the cannabis industry may lure consumers away from alcohol. At “Cannabis In The Booze Industry,” a conference during Bar Convent Brooklyn, a trade show for the beverage industry in June 2019, leaders from both the cannabis and alcohol industries gathered to talk about how one affects the other. All signs are clear that the rapidly growing cannabis sector is a significant threat to the alcoholic beverage industry, particularly for beer drinking consumers. Larger alcoholic beverage distributors, including Constellation Brands, Molson Coors, and Heineken, have already invested heavily in cannabis in an effort to ride the wave rather than be washed away in a potential tsunami of non-alcoholic canna-drinks. Or, as studies like research from the University of Georgia and Syracuse University in New York are finding, legalization of marijuana could mean interest in — and consumption of — alcohol experiences a corresponding decline. . . .3). Bars Are Ready to Get Onboard With the inclusion of cannabis-infused drinks, bars stand to attract consumers who would want to socialize or recreationally indulge while avoiding alcohol. These beverages could offer options to widen bars’ customer base to include people who don’t want to drink alcohol. Since there’s a chill-factor to the beverages, whether they’re THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused, makes them stand out from current non-alcoholic options.)
