BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Wrigley scion moves from chewing gum to pot

Those tracking marijuana’s move to mainstream can chew on this: The family name that made a chewing gum an American mainstay is moving into the pot business.

William H. Wrigley Jr. II, who sold his family’s business to Mars Inc. in 2008, is helping to raise $65 million for Surterra Wellness, a medical cannabis startup in Georgia with licenses to operate in Florida and Texas, according to an article on Monday’s Bloomberg.

For 54-year-old Mr. Wrigley, who left the candy business after the sale and now serves at Surterra’s board chairman, this is his first direct investment in the marijuana industry, which he backs for the medical benefits, he told Bloomberg.
