Philip Morris started selling Marlboro “M” Marijuana cigarettes in Colorado and it seems like cannabis is being more and more tolerated and embraced by people all over the US.
Philip Morris is the world’s largest cigarette producer and with this announcement, the company certainly plans to become a game changer in its industry, pioneering the way for marijuana farms to get their share of the tobacco market.
Instead of choosing to create a different brand for their new cannabis cigarettes, Philip Morris decided to add “Marlboro M” into their production line, which will be sold through marijuana licensed outlets in Colorado and Washington D.C.
“Our company has been high on the idea for marketing cannabis and has been monitoring the market for some time. We have finally made the decision to take the leap and support Colorado and Washington D.C. in their right to legalized marijuana.” says Serafin Norcik, Philip Morris’ Senior Vice President for Marketing.
Prices for the new Marlboro M cigarettes start at $89 per pack, you have to be 21 or older, and only one pack will be sold per person, after providing a photo ID. People are not allowed to further resell the Marlboro M Marijuana cigarette packs.
