One group that really doesn’t want the legalization of cannabis is the big alcohol firms.
California Beer and Beverage Distributors, a group which includes Anheuser-Busch InBev, donated $10,000 last week to the campaign against Prop. 19 in the USA, which seeks to legalise cannabis.
Would marijuana legalisation really cut into alcohol consumption? Probably so.
The interest group also includes Heineken, which knows from Amsterdam how legalization affects the market.
