Canada officially legalized the use of recreational cannabis back in June and apparently, the UK could follow suit within five years.
So it was only a matter of time that a powerful, international company would jump on the bandwagon and get involved with this huge movement.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had made legalizing recreational use of cannabis part of his 2015 election campaign, arguing the new law would keep the drug out of the hands of underage users and reduce related crime.

Let’s wait and see what Coca-Cola does now.
