Chances are ‘good’ that Whole Foods will sell marijuana products, CEO says
If marijuana is legalized you can expect Whole Foods Market to start selling cannabis products, the company’s CEO said on Thursday.
During a conversation hosted by The Texas Tribune, an audience member asked John Mackey whether his company would consider selling “alternative proteins” such as insects. Mackey said yes, and then, unprompted, he brought up marijuana.
“If cannabis is ever passed in Texas, chances are good that grocery stores will be selling that too,” he said. “You just never know what happens over time with markets. They change and evolve.”
