Coming soon there will be fighting robots in the candy factory and a cannabis history museum. Green Market Report had a chance to speak with Co-CEO Larry Scheffler about the company’s growth.

On Tuesday, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning about Delta-8 THC noting that the product hasn’t been evaluated or approved by the agency.
