Both Coke and Aurora, in separate statements, said they were interested in cannabidiol infused beverages but could not comment on any market speculation.

Coke stock gained slightly on a NY market weakened by concerns over trade tariffs.

Cannabis drinks use cannabidiol (CBD) as an ingredient for wellness drinks.

Soda's overrated, so Coca-Cola's looking into weed.

Two Malaysian Women Caned In Public For 'Attempting Lesbian Sex'
The BBC reports that the women, aged 22 and 32, were each caned six times in the Sharia High Court in the state of Terengganu. Both wore Muslim headscarves and sat on stools as the punishments were carried out in front of about 100 onlookers.

Last month, Corona beer brewer Constellation Brands Inc. announced it would spend $3.8 billion to increase its stake in Canopy Growth Corp., the Canadian marijuana producer with a value that exceeds C$13 billion ($10 billion).

The discussions, which are said to be "serious", concern a line of drinks that would contain the non-psychoactive cannabidiol chemical, meaning consumers wouldn't drink the beverages to catch a buzz but rather to ease pain or inflammation.

If Coca-Cola does go forward with making weed-infused products, it would be the first non-alcoholic manufacturer to make cannabis-related drinks, which would be pretty dank. Lagunitas, a craft beer label of Heineken, already has a drink infused with THC, which can be purchased at marijuana dispensaries in California.

Back in June, Canada became the second country in the world to legalise recreational marijuana.

The device has been rumoured to be a slightly "cheaper" alternative to the iPhone Xs and its expected £1,000 price tag. This one will cost nearly $1,100, topping last year's iPhone X, which at $1,000 seemed jaw-dropping at the time.

Canada officially legalised the use of recreational cannabis back in June and apparently the United Kingdom could follow suit within five years.

Several U.S. states have legalized marijuana but it remains against federal law.

According to a report by the Hemp Business Journal, the CBD market is estimated to grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, from $202 million in 2015.

When asked about the potential partnership by BNN Bloomberg, Coca-Cola spokesman Kent Landers said that the company, along with many others in the industry, is "closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive CBD as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world".
