Chances are ‘good’ that Whole Foods will sell marijuana products, CEO says - The Boston Globe
Marijuana Moment is a wire service assembled by Tom Angell, a marijuana legalization activist and journalist covering marijuana reform nationwide. The views expressed by Angell or Marijuana Moment are neither endorsed by the Globe nor do they reflect the Globe’s views on any subject area.
“I am pro-choice, favor legalizing gay marriages, protecting our environment, enforcing strict animal welfare protection laws (I’ve been an ethical vegan for 10 years), marijuana legalization, having a welfare safety net for our poorest or disabled citizens, and a radically reduced defense budget and military presence around the world,” he said at the time.
It would also seem to make good business sense generally for Whole Foods to plan an entry into the cannabis business. Perhaps that’s why the company, which was acquired by Amazon in 2017, recently enlisted a “seasoned trend-spotter” to make predictions about the hottest items for 2019, and hemp products made the top-10 list.
