    Pot May Be Next for Tobacco Farmers Already Turning to Hemp

    Altria Group Inc., the U.S. maker of Marlboro cigarettes, made a $1.8 billion investment in Cronos Group Inc. on Friday amid pressure to find new growth avenues as U.S. smoking rates decline. The partnership, which includes the option for Altria to take majority control in the future, may see the firm’s U.S. tobacco suppliers switch to cannabis if the drug is legalized, said Mike Gorenstein, chief executive officer of Toronto-based Cronos. “It’s certainly helpful that Altria already has a relationship with local contract farmers,” Gorenstein said in a phone interview Friday.
