Molson Coors on cannabis: 'looking at potential impacts, opportunities'

DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Molson Coors Brewing Company said it's looking into possible expansion into the marijuana industry.

This week in a conference call with analysts, Mark Hunter, CEO of the Denver brewing giant, was asked about Molson Coors and its marijuana plans.

"Obviously, being based here in Colorado, we're very familiar with cannabis, as it's been legalized here. And clearly this is something that, as the whole legal landscape continues to change, we're actively working to understand. We have a team of people working on that. We're looking at potential impacts and/or the opportunities associated with and we're developing a range of responses," Hunter said in the conference call.

But Hunter wasn't giving away any specific future pot plans.

So, more to come in due course," he continued.
