U.S. beer giants push into cannabis market thirsty for growth

The makers of Budweiser, Coors and other large-scale brewers are placing their bets on cannabis as a way to fight saturated markets and shifting consumer trends.

But concerns over growth continue to hang over the industry.

The light and sound sensitivity, the constant throbbing and the nausea – all are enough to have you reaching for the nearest bottle of pain relief to drown your soul in.
