That House of Lies Big Tobacco Cannabis Episode Took 1 Step Closer to Becoming Reality this Week
House of Lies was an HBO comedy about management consultants starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell. In Season 5 Episode 7 they work with idealist cannabis growers and introduce a novel idea of them partnering up with a big tobacco company.
It seems the premise didn’t escape the notice of Altria, makers of the iconic Marlboro. It was reported this week that they are in talks to form a partnership with Cronos Group, a major Canadian cannabis producer.
We’ll leave it to you to watch the episode to figure out what comes next. If it’s anything like that boardroom scene, it should be a lot of fun for both sides.
